Where I stayed
CouchSurfed with Thomas Humphrey
Drinks flowed well into the night as we bar hopped across town. A few too many in fact ending with me paying it back holding one of Tom's friend's hair back into the wee hours of the monring. Poor Franca, she didn't even make it to work on Monday!
Sunday was a true Bahamian experience starting with the breakfast line up for souse (a traditional Bahamian dish similar to a stew) from a local carpark food van. It was an early start to catch the 10am ferry across to Rose Island, but as the live band on-board sung, "Don't worry...'bout a thing...coz every little thing's gonna be alright..."
Far apart from the monstrosity known as Atlantic Resort, an American outpost dominating Paradise Island, Rose Island was how I'd pictured The Bahamas
As I left The Bahamas for Cuba, it really was goodbye to my crew friends, as well as CouchSurfing friend, Tom, who gave me such an awesome local experience. Thanks so much Tom - I never would have had seen the real Bahamas if it wasn't for you. Staying within the walls of Atlantis Resort, American tourists might as well not leave home!
