What is the relative size of the expatriate community? How would you describe overall morale among expatriates?

Expat community is small, with U.S. embassy folks being the surliest and with the lowest morale. Gas and oil companies have a small community of expats on the island and they seem fairly pleased overall. Brits do very well also, as Barbados caters to British tourists and tastes. - Jul 11, 2016
