Day 241: Da Hangover Bar

16 and half hours later and we have arrived in Eleuthera.
Or as my sister keeps referring to it: Urethra.
(It was much funnier at 2pm when she told the customs officer that’s where we were heading).
It has been a long day of travel.
We were stuck in a very noisy Nassau flight lounge where the loudspeaker announcements sounded more of the auction house variety.
It’s Labor Day in the Bahamas tomorrow, so the place was bumpin’.
My favorite announcement, heard over the shouts coming from the nearby bar, was:
“A man has lost his wedding band, if found, please return to departure desk.”
Convenient.
And then finally a terrifying ride in a very small and old Dash 8.
15 people fit on that plane.
The highlight was when the pilot came on to make an announcement:
“Hello everyone, in ten minutes we will have to….(static)….(static)…(static)…so be sure to be wearing your seatbelt.”
Ummmm? Pardon me?
We survived it, obviously.
And we were greeted by one of my favourite people in the entire world, Serena.
Or as I call her Beena. Actually, Beans for short.
She’s getting married on Saturday and I’m here to witness and photograph.
She got us set up at this lovely resort.
Quaint and picturesque.
Imagine what Greece would look like if it French-Kissed a Bahamian woman, and voila - you have the Cocodimama Hotel.
OK!
Will write more tomorrow... I have a mojito waiting for me and a Fish Fry to get to.
