How sweet I roamed from field to field, and tasted all the summer's pride.

Could not agree more with William Blake. Here are the 3rd installment of my Caribbean tour, this time the Island of St. Maarten/Sint Maarten. I found it fascinating how the Island plays into the caricature of its history. The French side clings to its European roots, while the Dutch side plays up its Caribbean vibe.

I have to say thou, out of the seven Islands my friend and I have been to, St. Martin was my least favorite. Partly because the taxi we rented for the day was just awful and did not want to take us to all the destination we wanted to check on both sides of the Island. Nevertheless, I loved the Dutch side more and would like to explore the whole Island longer in the future.

 I found the name of the above bar absurdly hilarious.

my love affair with Harley motorcycles continues on!

I've been to St. Marteen, a friend of mine has a family there. One of my favorite places in the world, too bad you did not enjoy it.
