    The Cayman Islands, and George Town in particular, is an important center for international banking. More than 700 banks, representing interests from scores of different countries, have branches here.

    The off shore financial services industry pumps millions of dollars into the local economy and is one of the reasons the Cayman Islands enjoys a higher standard of living than most other islands of the Caribbean.

    I have managed to avoid the headache that comes from being concerned about high finance by keeping my personal worth at little more than the minimum needed for day-to-day survival.

    rum cake

    I heard a lot about famous RUM cake that made me expect more. You sure can feel rum in it, it’s tasteful, but it is more muffin that is served for breakfast in Hampton Inn chains, than cake. I would say it’s really good muffin!
    A word about locals:
    I was in a hurry buying those run cakes, since my bus was almost leaving and almost cut the person in front of line who was local. They are so nice, guess what he said. “Don’t be sorry; go ahead I don’t need to catch a bus!”
