Yesterday's visitor

Welcome to our first visitor from the U. S. Virgin Islands.

The closest I have come was the British Virgin Islands next door, during a Caribbean cruise some years back.

The USVI is, like Western Sahara, a Non-Self-Governing Territory whose citizens are citizens of the United States. They may vote in primary elections but not in the general election for president. The Islands have, over time, been under the sway of Spain, Britain, the Netherlands, France, and Denmark-Norway. The earliest inhabitants were the Ciboney, Carib, and Arawaks. Columbus named the islands for St Ursula and her legendary eleven thousand virgins. [Wikipedia]
