      ... island (I never found out about this island until too late, so never went there, but all the history of the slave trade is on this island (it cant be much different from what I have seen in the Dominican Republic)

      Walking around its a really busy place, lots of people, lots of cars and taxi drivers trying to get you into their cabs, this is where not talking French comes in handy, a blank look and a shrug is enough to put most of ...

      ... into any other American port city. I could have been landing in Boston for all I knew. It wasn't until we got closer to the runway that you could see the buildings.

If you think you hate your loud neighbors... think again.

      ... this afternoon, it opened as a slave holding station before they were sent to America. It ran for 4 centuries and over 20million slaves passed through. It is an amazingly beautiful place with a very sad past. I imagine quite spiritual if you can get a moment without a hawker in your face every two feet.
