This week I had the privilege of visiting the lovely island of Bermuda.
The first thing I would say is that its a really nice place ; in part I have to say its a lot like Cayman. The buildings are very “British Colonial” and the overall feel of the place is safe, clean and and overall nice place. Where it differs is that it is somewhat “hilly” although there are no mountains.
One other big difference is the number of scooters that are around. In Bermuda the law states that there can only be one car per residence. So most people have a scooter to get around town. Its funny to see ladies with high heels and executives in suits on their little Honda scooter zipping around town.
Here is a scooter parking lot in downtown Hamilton. Everywhere you look there are scooters parked in the street.
Right in Hamilton, the world headquarters of Bacardi ; who knew! This sure was lovely ; note the dual waterfalls. Also, the lawn was one of the most perfectly manicured I have ever seen.
View from “Blu” restaurant of Pitts Bay. Very nice.
I saw quite a few of these when going for a run one morning. (note : running in Bermuda with the hills is soooo much more difficult than Cayman). Cutting though this rock to make the roads must have been quite a job.
Ok … the finale. As the title of my post says “When in Rome … ” so I dressed like the Bermudians This is acceptable business attire here. It definitely felt funny to wear shorts like that with a tie, and of course the socks!
My trip to Bermuda was very quick but I really hope to get to go back at one point.
