St. Kitts: First Impressions
My fiancee Melissa and I recently moved from Victoria, BC, Canada to the island of St. Kitts and Nevis.
This small island of about 30,000 people is in the Caribbean aka. the West Indies in the Lesser Antilles, and more specifically, the Leeward Islands.
Things move slowly. As with most hot places, people are in no hurry. Posted business hours are only a rough suggestion of when people may be in the office. Accomplishing anything requires multiple trips.
Keep left! Similar to the UK, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand, they drive on the left side of the road.
What's the same?
Colonial origin. St. Kitts was once a split British and French colony -- the same as Canada.
Friendly people. Similar to Canada, people seem very polite and courteous.
We've just skimmed the surface, and look forward to discovering more about our new home! :)
