I feel like James Bond

Yes, I order my martinis shaken. Also, the airport hotel I'm staying at in St. Maarten is right across the street from the Casino Royale. I just got here and am about to go exploring, so I have no idea what games they have in there. I'm sure I'll find out.

I just have one night here tonight, and then I'm flying on to St. Kitts tomorrow. I have already endured too much airport craziness and I'm only on the 2nd day of my 3 week journey. When my first flight landed in Newark, and old woman (maybe 80?) got escorted off the plane by police. Its a good thing we still have an escalated threat level set to orange (if you don't know the airport threat levels, read here). Personally I wish we would drop down one level, so I could say that "the threat level was lowered to elevated". But then we might have missed arresting this super dangerous terrorist grandmother.

Here is a picture from my hotel room balcony:

It looks like I left Fort Collins at just the right time. The weather report says it is supposed to drop down to 3 (Farenheit!) tonight. OK, I'm heading out to grab some dinner now, but I'll leave you with a Caribbean fun fact. The Virgin Islands are in one of those weird half-time-zones (3.5 hours ahead of Denver).
