About the Bahamas, what?

My little brother and I just got back from a 3.5 day cruise to the Bahamas. No big deal – we handled our first cruise with grace and dignity, as expected. Most of our time was spent chilling out on the ship, but we did  disembark in Nassau and Grand Stirrup, a tiny island the cruiseline owned for some beach-ing. In Nassau we went to an anti-racism museum and picked up some info about slave trade in the Bahamas (which wasn’t something the cruise talked about. ha.), saw Parliament and visited some of the port-side markets. It was pretty, but a lot like Miami. To get the full picture, I have some lovely videos…

 

¡On the first day, while still at the Port of Miami, we did this awesome Titanic-esque saftey training. Across from us is one of the causeways where sexual molesters are living, cause they can’t live in the city. Yeah. Go Miami. 

¡On the second night at sea, we decided to get swanked out for dinner, involving heels, a suit, and tamed hair. I’m not sure how the rest of the ship was able to control themselves.

 

¡There was also Karaoke. Now, normally I’m a HUGE karaoke fan, and I can’t wait to get up and sing in Seoul, but I just wasn’t feeling in with this crowd. (And they didn’t have anything I wanted to sing. What Karaoke place leaves out Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing? Super sad.)  Aaron though, was feeling it all the way! We share the same rhythmic sense. . . 

 

¡We both were kind of relived to get back to Miami, and it’s non-moving ground and lush tropical concrete, where food is closer to non-existent in our lives. We waited to the bus for about 45 min, in classic Miami style, transferred to a train, transferred from that to the metro-mover, and ended up waiting by a bus stop that was about a 30 min walk from the port where we started. (We didn’t think we were allowed t cross the port bridge on foot though… thus the adventure.)

 

¡On the bus, Aaron tore apart his luggage trying to find his iPod knock-off. He was victorious, don’t worry. And it’s a nice vid of downtown Miami. So cute!
