Bermuda is the part of the world that will discussed today.
In Bermuda there were no indigenous people, so the collapse of the Sea Venture ship marked the beginning of colonization. However, most of the settlers left as soon as they could build several new ships. There were only three left. The history of the foundation of Bermuda is noted on their flag - the only flag in the world on which a sinking ship is depicted. In 1612 new settlers were added to the first settlers, when a ship arrived to settle the Bermuda Islands. Over time, new settlers, mostly Portuguese, began to arrive from the Azores. Profits and African slaves (slavery was outlawed only in 1833), as well as a huge number of Native Americans exiled to Bermuda or sold as slaves. This mixture of cultures has spawned some deeply rooted traditions, from the Gombeys dance company with their colorful costumes to spicy ginger bread, the Dark and Stormy cocktail (rum and ginger beer) and cod for breakfast. St. George remains the oldest continuously inhabited English city in both Americas.
Bermuda is still the overseas territory of Great Britain.
The life of the first settlers was not easy: finding water was always a difficult task. There are no rivers, but only a few marshes and seasonal ponds. Even today, residents of Bermuda do not have municipal water systems. Instead, they collect water using specially designed white roofs on their homes that direct water to underground reservoirs. If they run out of water, or their reservoir is contaminated, they pay for water

На Бермудских островах не было коренных жителей, поэтому крушение корабля Sea Venture положило начало колонизации. Однако большинство поселенцев уехали, как только смогли сколотить несколько новых кораблей. Остались только трое. История основания Бермуд отмечена на их флаге - единственном в мире флаге, на котором изображен тонущий корабль. В 1612 году к первым поселенцам-основателям прибавились новые, когда с целью заселения Бермудских островов прибыл корабль
