I'm always proud to be a Bahamian, but certain moments like today during our Econ Final Exam give me a bit more happiness and pride.
While taking our Global Economics final exam, our ship left the pier in Freeport Harbor and headed out to sea. It was awesome when we were pulling out through the channel, and all the kids in my class (which is on the starboard side of the ship) got their first glimpse of the turquoise water and white sand beach just west of the port. Our exam stopped for a few seconds as everyone stared in awe.
It's moments like these that make me realize just how incredible our country really is.
So we are Havana bound after leaving Freeport. Surprisingly enough, we were docked in Freeport for less than 3hrs- just enough time to offload the Lifelong learners. I'm excited to get back.
