Comments True natives not all that friendly but translplants were extremely nice. Case in point, owner of Chat 'n Browse (from Connecticutt I think) loaned us his binoculars for our drive tour around the island. He didn't ask for collateral, ID, NOTHING!!!!Amazing trust! Humidity was terribly high and temps in low 90's but the wind kept it tolerable, barely-HA. I wish we had known to be prepared to pay for small purchases in Dutch $. When using American, locals were either ignorant on conversion or very conniving--they would cheat you nearly every time. Also wished we had brushed up on Centigrade to Farenheit conversion. Oven in our rental cabin was in centigrade!! Luckily we weren't trying anything critical and muddled through. A guide taped to the wall would have been helpful!! We flew round trip on American/American Eagle and had no lost/delayed luggage, no missed flights, no problems!
