What a contrast

Main Street at Compass Cay

Bay Street at Nassau

It's taken a bit of getting used to but the culture shock is easing a bit now.

Kinda funny that many of the folks we said goodbye to a few days ago were either, already here, or have pulled in since our arrival. Eight of us Compassites got together yesterday and took a cab into downtown for lunch at the Bahamian Kitchen [Warning! NSFW]. Good local cuisine. Then we all did the straw market for a second before going to the Athena Cafe for a drink and appetizers. As we were leaving, the rain came pouring down in sheets and flooded Bay Street. All the cruise ship tourist were quite a site as they scrambled for cover.

The weather is a bit unsettled for now so we may leave tomorrow or wait until Monday.

Next stop will be Fort Lauderdale.
