One advantage to being the governor in a tourist destination is getting to play the tourist.

Governor Anwar Choudhury continued familiarizing himself with Grand Cayman this week by visiting some of the island’s popular spots, including the George Town fish market, Bodden Town’s Mission House and the Cayman Crystal Caves in North Side.

Mr. Choudhury showed he was not afraid to get his hands dirty, taking the opportunity to gut a fish while talking with the local fishermen.

At the Mission House, he learned about some of the local history from former Speaker of the House Mary Lawrence and members of the Bodden Town Heritage Committee. He also visited the adjacent Nurse Josie Senior Centre.

Later, he slipped underground to see the stalactites, stalagmites and subterranean pools of the Crystal Caves.

Officials who also participated in the tour included Deputy Governor Franz Manderson, MLAs Kenneth Bryan, Dwayne Seymour, Anthony Eden, Alva Suckoo and Chris Saunders, and Leader of the Opposition Ezzard Miller.
