In retrospect, it was a wise move by the responsible authorities in Barbados to ultimately choose Rihanna as the face of the tourism campaign.
By the way, the name Barbados comes from the Portuguese – Los Barbados. It means, how could it be otherwise, “the bearded one”. If you look at the long roots of the mahogany trees on the easternmost island of the Lesser Antilles, it is very reminiscent of a long beard. The “juice” can simply be imagined without it.
