Place is dump. Fish Fry is disgusting. Walk around out behind any one of them to see rats and flies and filth. I don't know why a tourist would want to go. And asses hanging around cursing and sucking teeth. Not a place I'd showcase ever.

It's not necessarily unsafe, it's just disgusting and dirty. I won't go for the filth - ever walk around the back of some of those restaurants? Ever use the bathroom??

Time to consider another industry for Grand Bahama. It IS dead. I can't fathom how people are managing to wait around for the tourists to come with no product there.
Turn Grand Bahama into a tech centre. Retrain people's minds to forget about relying on tourism. The time for changing the mind set of service/sales industry is now.

BPL Chairwoman Darnell Osborne seems to know this is a problem and let she and all the management at BPL/BEC has allowed money to be left on the table by corrupt, thieving employees. Management and board **should all be fired.** **Immediately**. Stop taking food outta my children's mouths. Convict. Give a s$@t about regular Bahamians who **do** pay their bills (and have to work extra hard and long to do it).

And these are the same people who will take office under the guise of "serving their country". This is among the top DISservices that a public officer can commit - holding the people's money, contributing to the exorbitant cost of electricity and cronyism. Disgusted...

.... curfew.... If Bahamians are going to act like feral, out of control children who can't manage a dispute without violence, then they need a curfew.

Phhttt.... happened to me too. Happened to so many people I know - I'm hard pressed to think of a person I know that hasn't had some crime or violence be inflicted on them. I am sorry for their loss of personal items, and their loss of trust in fellow citizens, loss of their sense of security and loss of their faith in humanity. It's a crappy club to have to join.

We should carry tourists on tours just to have them see the filth and decay of the downtown? Or maybe have them get robbed at gunpoint somewhere? Why not take them to some of the illegal dumping sites for a nice Kodak moment. Man, I don't even go to festivals here for fear of crime or getting my car buss up. We need to clean up our act first on the simple basics of our tourism product.
