Chattel houses may be home for many of the nation’s poor. But that is no longer the case in these modern times. Some folks just choose to build or buy a wood house simply because they are economical and comfortable.

And yet some use Chattel properties as shops or bars. RA Mapps Bar is located at the corner of Eagle Hall in the parish of St. Michael. Even though I have not eaten there yet, I understand it is known for its rotisserie chicken. The vivid colors and architecture are unique to Barbados.

It is no secret that I am nostalgic about road signs that are found all over the country. ‘BUS STOP ’, ‘Which-A-Way' and ‘STOP’ are some of my favorites. If you never had the pleasure of seeing them then please do so. Then maybe you can appreciate this basic old fashion road sign.

Road signs are so simply. Without them how would you know where you are?
