A horse drawn carriage takes some tourists past the Bahamian Parliament building, which has a statue of Queen Victoria in the center of the square.Here's another shot of the Parliament - it's located on the main street, adjacent to the shops all the tourists walk through.
We walked up to the top of Mount Fitzwilliam, where the Bahamiam Government Houseis located. It's the official residence of the Governor General of the Bahamas and it's where he stays when he's on the island.
We were not allowed to take a picture of the house, but we were allowed to take this photo of the view from the front. In the distance, you can see the cruise ships in the harbor.
The guard who escorted us through the property told us that all the government buildings in the Bahamas were painted pink, and the police buildings are painted green. I wonder what the blue ones are?
