We heard Bermuda Radio transmissions over 100 miles from Bermuda. They really are helpful. Here is their installation in Georgetown.
In Bermuda we were able to spend a day touring the island. It is a beautiful island and the most affluent one we have seen in our travels. We were surprised to learn that John Smith (of Jamestown, Va fame) was shipwrecked here before going on to Jamestown for his second trip in 1609. When shipwrecked he found cedar trees and pigs (from another shipwreck they think). The foliage is more like home and there are beautiful gardens. We would like to spend more time here.
People can have only one car per household. They may have as many motor scooters as they want. Foreigners cannot rent cars. This sure helps the traffic problem.
