After Eleuthera we took the plane back to Nassau & spent 2 very nice days with Theo & family, a friend from the couchsurfing network. From there another small plane to Georgetown, Exuma to carry on our mission of visiting schools with our drug prevention program….
There was no greeting committee attending our arrival at Exuma & so as soon as we got out of the airport building we started walking –& dragging our suitcases– in the direction of Georgetown. We were assured that it ‘isn’t far’, however it’s just as well that a car stopped for us as it would have taken several hours of walking in the hot sun to have reached town!
We’re happy to say that the first hotel we approached in the very small provincial town, kindly donated a nice room for the one week that we planned to stay on the island. A big thank you to Marshall’s Guest House!
Despite Exuma being a very small island with a population of only 5000, we were able to conduct 5 school programs—4 of them with a TV/DVD set up & one ‘improvised’ when we found ourselves in the middle of a power cut. We’re really enjoying our time in the ‘family islands’ –each one is really special & appreciative of our anti-drugs & smoking program.
