Living in the Virgin Islands was like living inside a history book. Christopher Columbus named them. Ponce de Leon was the first governor of Puerto Rico. Sir Francis Drake sailed through a passage that bares his name. Alexander Hamilton grew up on the island of St. Criox. These are just a few of the people who left their mark.
All of this, and many more things, made fertile ground for the imagination of a little girl who arrive at the age of five.
She immediately felt at home.
