We just returned from a conference in Bermuda. While the island is still as
lovely as ever and the locals are still very gracious, it seems that the
smaller hotels are rapidly disappearing and prices in the larger ever
increasing ($17 USD for an appetizer). I asked someone why that was. It
seems that tourism now accounts for only about 30% of the island's economy
while banking and other financial services have skyrocketed. Nevertheless,
it is still a fun place to go for a quick getaway. The best deal was an all
day bus and ferry pass for $11 USD.
