My country, The Bahamas is an archipelago of 700 islands and cays surrounded by a mass of clear blue ocean, The capital of The Bahamas is Nassau, New Providence other islands include Grand Bahama, Andros, Abaco, and other family islands. As a Bahamian, our language is English. There are a diverse population including predominately Haitians, Chinese and Philippines. In our school system we are taught American English and British English, however we love to shorten words and create idioms and phrases we call “Bahamianese.” The majority of Bahamians are coloured.

A chain of 700 islands in the Caribbean Sea that was claimed for Spain in 1492, but switched back and forth between British, Spanish, and Pirate rule between 1648 and 1783, at which point it became a colony of Great Britain. The Commonwealth of The Bahamas became independent on July 10th, 1973. A beautiful land of hot Bahama-mamas, relaxing reggae remix, partying all night long, and the smell of papaya in the air.

A very beautiful country with really crazy drivers.

A typical tourist will note the beautiful beaches and clear water and the fact that they probably just got hit by a bus full of other tourists being driven by a crazy man.
Example 1: Wow, the Bahamas are beautiful! Let's go swimming!

Me: You would think that a chupacabre would have determined a better prey than a goat by now. Right, trashbag?

Trashbag: Bahamas x 3. Yes, I figure he would be attacking small sheep by now.
