Marigot, Saint Martin

The next stop on my Caribbean tour was Sint Maarten / Saint Martin, a small island split between the Dutch (Sint Maarten) and the French (Saint Martin).  Marigot, the capital of Saint Martin, is home to Fort Saint Louis, Marigot Bay, and a thriving Flea Market.  While here, I drank a can of Guarana, a Brazilian soft drink made from the berry of the guarana plant.  Guarana seeds have about twice the caffeine content of coffee beans and, in fact, another name for caffeine is guaranine.  I was wide awake for the rest of the day.

One Response to Marigot, Saint Martin

  1. Okay, I have to ask. Are you flying from island to island? First, I thought you were on a cruise, but I don’t see many people around or are you trying to avoid them? Either way, your pictures are great.
