Removed French Wikitravel Link
The French Wikitravel link was to a place called Bermudes which I'm quite prepared to believe is the French name for Bermuda. But the intro para of the Bermudes article stated that Bermudes is in the Caribbean, which places it at least 1000 miles away from Bermuda which is in the North Atlantic. I will refer this to the user who added the french link for clarification; in the meantime I've removed the link as it is misleading. -- Chris j wood 08:15, 4 Sep 2004 (EDT)
Certainly Hamilton is a city by most definitions (although a very small one of course). It has a cathedral (Anglican I seem to recall) which is one of the basis for older UK cities (notwithstanding the new cities eg Milton Keynes) and is the capital. As to St George's, I suspect that is only a town. In the years I lived there I never saw the name City of St. George! Somerset definately is a town (a hamlet perhaps in any other mainland country as it whizzes by in about 10 seconds when you are roaring down Middle Road at the speed limit (approx 50 km/hr). In the same way I would never include Flatts in there or the Dockyards.

"As a result drinking water is collected on the roofs of all buildings (by law), and in special catchment areas. "
Perhaps a much clearer explanation would be, "As a result, drinking water is collected from the roofs of all buildings (by law), and in special catchment areas, and stored in tanks under the ground for each home or premesis."

St. George vs. St. George's
Bermudians refer to BOTH the town and the parish as St George's (apostrophe S). Former Bermuda resident.
Any thoughts on setting up the nine Parishes of Bermuda with small city outlines? Right now we have Bermuda and the "cities" of Hamilton and St. George. Several of the Parishes (that don't even have one of the two cities in them) have pretty strong article potential... Southampton, Sandys, Hamilton Parish... and others have lodging, dining, beaches or at least some attraction as noted under "Parishes" in the Bermuda article. I think perhaps a single outline-type listing under "cities" combining the parish list with the city list would allow direct access to the Hamilton and St. George articles from the Bermuda article page. Thoughts? (rephrased from original comment) OldPine 07:40, 27 August 2006 (EDT)
