Last October, I wrote a story about getting dirty and sweaty on a Barbados vacation where we joined locals exploring little-seen parts of the island on some of the free outings offered by the Barbados National Trust. Now Morris Greenidge, a private Barbadian guide, author and steel-pan music teacher, is leading themed walks engaging a little more brain and less brawn, exploring the island’s melting pot of religions, Amerindian trails, slave history and architecture.
An intellectually curious, articulate former career journalist, Greenidge recently launched a walk in the capitol Bridgetown featuring its melting pot of religions, from two mosques and a Jewish synagogue to Freemansonry and Hindi influences and some dozen Christian faiths. The urban crawls fill a void especially for cruise ship passengers seeking rewarding alternative ground tours.
On Greenridge's upcoming walking schedule:
Feb, 29: Holetown, the original settlement site
March 14 and 21: Bridgetown
April 4, and 11: Bridgetown religious tour
The walks cost $10/per person and groups are limited to twenty. Greenidge also offers custom tours on Wednesdays or Saturdays with 14 days’ notice. For tour times, meeting places and bookings, call his 24/7 cell, 246- 230-7799.
