Habiba, Jacob and I are back on St. John after spending some time in America. So it’s back to the old grind of beaches, hiking and snorkeling in the Virgin Islands.
Delta Airlines Now Has Direct Service to JFK
I took a direct Delta flight to JFK in New York City, which is relatively new. Good t’ing, more options and a little competition for American Airlines. It was nice flight. The aircraft had little monitors on the back of each seat on which you could watch all the latest movies free or Home Box Office presentations for a few bucks. I got to see two movies, it was a long flight, the flight path taking us over the Turks and Caicos and the Bahamas before turning north along the US coastline instead of the more direct path over the Atlantic and past Bermuda.
The Gym in Paradise
I asked Tom Bertolino, one of the lease holders for the Gym in Paradise space in the St. John Marketplace if it was true that they would reopen the gym. Tom answered in the affirmative saying that it was in “lawyerland” for the present, but he expected the gym to be reopened next month. Rumor also has it that all outstanding memberships will be honored. Good t’ing! I hope it pans out. (But I have to say this, I sure love the gym at the Weston!)
Obama on St. Thomas
According to a report by ABC News an Obama staff scheduler said that the president planned to spend Easter vacation on St. Thomas here in the Virgin Islands.
