LiB in St. Maarten

January 8, 2004

Hello my devoted readers (those few of you that there are). I am writing from the Dutch side of St. Maarten (there’s a French side too). Apparently, if you want to buy expensive jewelery, mass amounts of liquor or cigarettes, or electronics, the Caribbean is the place to do it. Walked into an electronics store today and heard someone bartering for an MP3 player. I had to do a double-take on that one. The “No, really, I’ll give you a good deal….” is still something new to my American ears. Of course, the one thing I was looking for in the electronics store, an Ipod, wasn’t there. Ah well, back to America it is.
