Barbados

NOTE: The three smaller countries along the northern coast of South America—GUYANA, SURINAME, AND FRENCH GUIANA—are usually not considered “South American” in speaking of the work, since they’ve always had workers from the Caribbean.  They really don’t have much to do with the work in South America, since they don’t speak the same languages, and they are much more Caribbean/European in their culture than Latin.
