Here on St. Thomas we really felt at home, since the Virgin Islands was once a Danish colony, and in the city of Charlotte Amalie, there are still lots of old Danish road signs and Danish architecture from the good old days - - -
And tax free Bacardi rum, - and more - - -
A perfect place for a boat drill - - -
