Regarding Barbados ["Jump In. And Savor." by Janis Cooke Newman, Nov. 1]. She should have tried the cuisine at Eve's Garden in Hastings . . . scrumptious. Loved the article. Vanita Maloney New York City

Intel said Tuesday that it will lay off 1,320 workers at its Caribbean operations, the latest in a series of job cutbacks at the computer chip maker in the past 18 months. The layoffs will occur between now and the end of the year. Intel will shut down its Barbados plant, which employs 900 in the assembly of semiconductor components. The remaining 420 layoffs will be at its Puerto Rico manufacturing operations. However, Intel will retain 450 workers at its systems manufacturing division there.

The dining room of the Sunbury Plantation great house, its varnished mahogany table glittering with china, crystal, candles and silver, looks to be awaiting a banquet to celebrate a man of letters who has sailed in from the English mainland. In the cellar of the stately 300-year-old home, hand-tooled leather saddles, wrought iron carriages, horseshoes and buggy whips speak to yesteryears of wealthy white planters being squired about the island.

Some people in this self-proclaimed Land of the Flying Fish now concede that it might have been unwise to make a wandering species the nation's mascot. The Atlantic flying fish featured on Barbados' coins, stamps and five-star menus have flown their liquid coop to waters about 125 miles south, off the two-island nation of Trinidad and Tobago. Their departure has idled thousands of fishermen here, imperiled the economy and bruised national pride.

I came to Barbados for the flying fish sandwiches. Not that this small island at the easternmost edge of the Caribbean doesn't offer other attractions. Like perfect weather. And beaches that come in two flavors -- Caribbean, which has a sea that is turquoise and tranquil, and into which the sun sets spectacularly every evening, and Atlantic, where the coastline is rocky and the sand is the color and consistency of cake flour. Then there are the Barbadians themselves, people who are the very definition of friendly locals.

Barbados: A box accompanying a Travel article Sunday on the culinary attractions of Barbados incorrectly gave the island's official tourism website as www.barbados.org. That website is actually www.visitbarbados.org.
