Whenever we have a chance to save money in our travels, we do. So we took a public transportation to the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort when we went to the The Bahamas this year.
And so we met the exciting lady driver Eugenie who not only skillfully maneuvered her passenger van but also gave us a short history and current events in the Island. She stated close to 90% of the Island’s income is from tourism. That is why she said, she loves tourists. She added she loves The Bahamas so much because it is a free country since 1973, an independent Commonwealth realm of Great Britain.
I was surprised to learn from Wikipedia that “the Bahamas is one of the richest countries in the Americas (following the United States and Canada). It’s economy is based on tourism and finance.”
Here are some more photos of the Bahamas which I think Eugenie will be proud of. Enjoy!
