Actually, he was shipped to Barbados
, where Bishop's plantation

This is one of my all-time favourite books - I love the escapism of the by now completely familiar adventures. I have a tattered copy of it by my bed (one of the only boks I bothered to lug with me when I moved to Ireland).
Funny thing is, it's a Russian translation. I've never read the book in the original - even seeing the name in Latin letters feels weird.
