Fun With Flags

IMG_8287

One of the stops I made on my cruise over Easter Break was to an island in the Caribbean called St. Martin.  It is very unique because it is divided between 2 countries: France and The Netherlands.  Forty percent of the island is owned by The Netherlands and they call the island Sint Maarten  The other 60% of the island is owned by France and they call it Saint-Martin.  While on the tour of the island, the guide said that if you lived on the French side of the island and you wanted to call your friend on the Dutch side of the island, you would have to make an international call, but if you called France it would be a local call.  It is so amazing that a call so far away could be local.  The picture above shows the flags where we crossed the border from the French side into the Dutch side of the island.
