Animals, The Bahamas
PLEASE DON'T FEED THE WILDLIFE!!! The cruiseline set us up with a BBQ on CocoCay and hundreds of people were eating at the same time. Some of the 'brighter' ones thought feeding the birds would be fun. Once a few were fed, they all went nuts trying to get our food (duhhh)! When in a large crowd with lots of food and birds around, DON'T FEED THE BIRDS!!
We landed in a downpour at the airport where my 12-year-old brother (at the time) was nearly arrested by two guards at gunpoint. After over four hours in the airport we finally made it to our hotel and collapsed on the beds.
Also, watch out for the giant rats that run freely through the cities... and around your car at night... and sometimes through the restaurants.
Why do people do this???
The guy in the photo was feeding the seagulls at the beach, and they practically attacked him!
Not a good idea to do this anywhere.
Be prepared for LOTS of mosquitos!!! I was eaten alive. They do have mosquito nets
over the beds & mosquito coils to burn, but bring extra strength repellant with you.
