i am a Mason and met everybody i really needed to meet on the island at the first meeting i went to and they all gave me the low down in their various areas of endeavor
if it weren't for Cruzians, it would be paradise
I always preferred St.Thomas as a nicer place with nicer, friendlier people although I’ve noted a change in atmosphere there too.
I’d still like to live down there.
What were you doing there? Working or living the life of a wealthy expat?
Chode - I used to work there too! from 1977-1979 or so...
Was a mathematician/programmer. Left when after a friend who worked there got murdered - it really ruined the whole atmosphere there... Was Peter Burton still around when you where there? I figure he would be the one to turn off the lights for the last time when it shut down for the last time.
i don't remember the name though
We used to fly over from the Naval Hospital Roosevelt Roads for an occasional lunch from 1983 to 86. It felt safe enough at that time. Things must really have deteriorated.
they even lost the cruise ships for a LONG time due to same on the boat tourists straying more than a block or two away from the strand
