St. Maarten is on the edge of the Atlantic, far from everything. The night sky is amazing. I saw Venus shining on the water, and a moonbeam, a column of light striking the water.
St. Maarten is one of those international places, where you can find many languages, customs, and wonderful food. It is easy to get a cab into town, or cross the border to the French side, St. Martin.
I was there to see my friends, Laura and Donna. We were celebrating our birthdays, and the trip we took in 1987 when I was a Washington, D.C. intern for my last semester of law school. Travel is broadening, and a lot of fun!
