Rihanna -- Party Over Here, Party Over There

Rihanna found another way to take her mind off tomorrow's big court case -- by taking the "Gettin' Over Chris Brown" party train to Barbados.

It's unclear why Ri is rockin' an old Ethiopian flag ... or hangin' on the shoulder of the Prime Minister of Barbados ... but we're told she's back in her homeland because she wants to "be as far away from [the Chris Brown] case as possible."

Plus, the weather ain't too bad either!
