Pirates of the past. The Pirates had a stronghold of the Islands in the past. Now they are models decorating the showcases of the shops. There is a pirates’ museum in Nassau. This Pirate’s name was Black Beard Pirate and is standing in front of shop and most of the passerby are taking photograph with him.
Nassau downtown is closed to Nassau Port. Ships anchored at port are seen from here. There is a Festival place and a market in between port and this street. Immigration ( no check, no stamping on Passport  while going out but for going back to ship only they  check your passport and the Cruise ID Card) facilities, tourist information are available  at this building ca;;ed Festival Place. In the morning when people from 4-5 cruises  come out to this place it looks like a festival. 
Colorful place. Its the market attached to Festival Place. The ship passengers have to go through this place for going to city sight seeing and going back to the ship. Here prices are higher than the outside market like straw market.

  1. Love it! Nassau became my second home for two years. The culture, the food, the people, the music… plus the personal ties, it truly became my second home.

    • Nice to know that. Its seems to be a good place to stay. There is no husle-bustle of big city. We ere there for one day, for sight seeing only, so we can’t say about the city.
      Thanks for your comment.
      all the best

      • the hustle-bustle is there. In the city, you see the poverty, but everyone is happy. i saw some of the touristic areas, but i mostly remained in the city, but I love the every day motion of being there, walking down the streets, going to the stores, going to the beach, visiting friends, etc.

      • Yeah, people seems to be simple by nature. Poverty is there but still they are happy. It was good experience to meet the people of Bahamas.
        You are from the Island or temporarily you have been there?
        Have nice time.

      • I am Nicaraguan. Now I am an American Citizen living in South Florida. My ex lives in Nassau. His family lives there. I spent a lot of wonderful moments there.

      • Naturally you are more familiar to nassau. By one visit, tourists may not know about the city, its culture etc. Anyway its very nice of you to talk about the city. Thank you and looking forward for more blogging interactions.
