Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

These are the flags of St. Maarten, both the Dutch and the French.  What a wonderful island of mixed cultures!

Before sailing in the Leeward Islands last spring, I had never visited any countries of Dutch or French influence (other than Montreal and Quebec City, Canada), and I was pleasantly surprised by the courtesy and friendliness shown to tourists.  In no way did I feel “foreign” except when I attempted to remember how to converse en Francais!
