Nassau on the island
of New Providence is the capital city of the Bahamas. The Bahamas
was a British Crown Colony until 1973. Today, they are a part of
the Commonwealth and recognize the British Monarch as their Chief of
State. The British Monarch appoints a Governor-General to
represent her interests there. They also have a Parliament with a
Prime Minister who serves as the Head of Government. I went to
Nassau in 2012 on a cruise after Christmas with my family and
friends. The weather was a comfortable 80 degrees, and the water
temperature was around 75-77 degrees. I was able to kayak,
snorkel, and swim in the ocean. Nassau has an old colonial feel
to it. We partied the night away after spending the day in Nassau
at a resort.
