Farley Hill ruins (in color)
Caribbean

Located 900 feet above sea level, these are the ruins of Farley Hill Great House. The house is situated on 17 acres of the Farley Hill National Park. Built in 1818, the house was the most imposing manor in Barbados for decades. Serving as residence primarily for the Briggs and later the Howell families, this property has been visited by dignitaries and royalty. It finally fell into ruins in the early 1900's. An attempt was made to restore the manor in 1956, only to burn down a few years later. In 1965 the government decided to preserve the ruins and proceeded to create the park.

More About The World

Welcome to Earth! It's a planet having an iron core, with two-thirds of its surface covered by water. Earth orbits a local star called the Sun, the light of which generates the food supply for all the millions of species of life on earth. The dominant species on Earth is the human being, and you're one of the six billion of them! Humans have iron in their blood, and their bodies are composed of two-thirds water, just like the planet they live on. The physical composition of the Earth, its people and everything on it contains an electro-magnetic field which is not yet fully understood. Theories and legends about the origin of Earth, people and life itself abound, however they are not commonly discussed. The bulk of earth's people spend their time immersed in daily activities, leaving the big questions for later. "Who are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going? How will we get there?" Many religions and philosophies have attempted to answer these questions over the years, but so far none has given an answer that everyone on the planet can accept. In contrast to all the disagreement, the similarities among people on earth are far, far greater than any differences. Welcome again to Earth! Enjoy your stay, and try to stay calm.
