Mandarin Oriental - Bermuda

Bermuda is home to one of the strangest statues I’ve seen. On the shoulder of a busy roundabout stands a bronzed bearded man in a hat, six-and-a-half-feet tall, with a smile on his face and both arms raised, like he’s waving both hands or running to embrace one of the passing cars. We passed the statue in a cab on the way to Front Street, the main nightlife and shopping area on the island (more on that in a minute).
