Summer Breezy

A while back I showed you some beach views of Eastern Nassau. This post has views of the same area but I did it in the form of a video instead. It was an unbelievably hot day and there was nothing to do but sit on the beach in the shade a tree and feel the refreshing breeze on my face. Just give yourself an hour or two out here and you’ll forget that the rest of the world even exists. Try it!

The video was recorded on the drive back from Yamacraw beach and heading along Eastern Road. You will get little peeks of Nassau’s Eastern coast as well as glimpse the beautiful houses that line the shore. Could the beat in the background be any more perfect? Enjoy!

 

Pop Stop :)

I came across the most refreshing fruit treat while passing through Downtown Nassau today and I absolutely have to share it with you. D’Nard is the proud co-owner of Pop Stop, which features a line of unique gourmet popsicles. He, along with his cousin started the business two years ago. The cool, fruity creations are made from delicious tropical fruits which are grown on their farm, and of course they are freshly prepared on a daily basis.

While I was talking to D’Nard, there was a steady stream of tourists as well as regulars all looking for a cool way to beat the heat, so you know this is good stuff!  Check out the vid to find out more about Pop Stop, and be sure to drop by and visit them in the Pompey Square when you come to Nassau. Tell them Chicajamaicana sent you 🙂

Tornado in the Bahamas!

A little over two weeks ago pictures showing a waterspout near the Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau emerged on social media. It had everyone talking excitedly about the “tornado” that was about to hit the capital, but being ever sceptical I dismissed it as nothing (maybe it wasn’t even a current photo), until my friend confirmed that it had actually been on the news. Anyway, the waterspout dissipated and everything quickly returned to normal. It was not to be that way for too long…

Paradise Island Bridge, Bahamas

Since today is a public holiday in the Bahamas (Labor Day), I decided to take my workout to the Paradise Island (PI) Bridge. There are actually two bridges connecting PI to the mainland, New Providence (Nassau), and provide another great way to stay in shape if you’re in the Bahamas.

Perks include the beautiful view, especially when you get to the  very top. On your walk/ jog you will see the Atlantis hotel, tourists coming and going by boat or ship and the Atlantic Ocean. Continue reading

Mi nuh deh a Jamaica now; mi deh a Ochi.

So apparently Jamaicans the world over are feeling quite puzzled because of a WhatsApp voice note that’s been making the rounds in the past few days. In the message a female voice can be heard telling someone that she lives in Jamaica. No big deal, right? The cringe worthy moment comes, however, when she explains that she’s not in Jamaica, but is instead in Ochi. A weh di…Wha-???

Now for anyone who is not really familiar with Jamaica, that means nothing. But for everyone who is from, or associated with yaad we know Ochi is the short for our beloved and beautiful Ocho Rios, a breath-taking town on Jamaica’s north coast. So if Ochi is located in Jamaica, what is this young lady talking about? Continue reading
