During the Roaring Twenties after WWI, many White American Artists were called "expatriates" and the famous Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein were but a few. Below is an article you will find interesting. Good luck and good sailing.

Rognvold,

I'm well aware of the common definition of "ex-pat" american companies use it to mean any employee temporarily assigned to a different country. Hell, I was an "ex-pat" for an american company. using the word incorrectly just makes things more difficult to understand. - especially for non-native english speakers. and yes any number of american jazz musicians set up shop in copenhagen - one of the major reason why copenhagen is still known as the jazz capital of europe

You should read the whole chain, I was being facetious. Several nots back a person was ranting about the rich stealing from us. Rich is relative, to the a lot of people in the third world someone with a 50' + boat would seem wealthy or rich, so in his view of the world they could bitch him out for stealing from them. Can't believe I have to explain this.

Re: Mass Robbery in St. Lucia

Thank you,

for sharing that most recent development - I don't know, to where is the U.S Navy's presence felt in that of the Caribbean H20s?

Yes,

Its unfortunate, about American/albeit, unintentional exploitation. I have lived in Central America, among many other places, in the Jungle! And, did see/experience, first-hand, the poverty most abundant - I gave/and continue to give a great deal of my/other money away to such people. If, I was onboard, I would just give them what money I had on my own person, without resolve or persecution - Yes, perhaps, because I can!

If your going to travel, and as that of an American, one Must be Aware of how one is going to be looked at -especially, if one is to not adopt local garbs and their customs/living there! Many American/Other tourists are not in knowing of the "Environmental" characteristic of a given populace -to which, for the most part, is not found in being their fault! Every/ALL places, around the world, in someway or that of another, is Exploited in the name of that of "Commerce!" Governments, Cities, Towns and others find ways with which to conduct commerce -Yes, some in that of a good way, for their peoples. "And, others, unfortunately, not so much for the sake of their peoples but for the sake of Themselves -Autocrats, if you will. "This, is that way the world has become into being! "Commerce, in its may faces & Forms.

Its just simply harder, for a somewhat Civilized Society, to take in the 21c.!

UnExCorp,
I have tried with great difficulty to understand what you are saying in regards to this topic. It is enigmatic to say the least. I think I may have to consult Zeehag--our resident
linguist for a more lucid explanation. Good luck and good sailing.

The last paragraph is utter nonsense; forced into the story to make somebody happy who asked for it to be included.

I have a friend who recently finished four years of medical school in St. Lucia. I'll have to ask him about his opinion of safety there.

But there's danger everywhere. Two people were just murdered on their houseboat in St. Petersburg earlier this week. It was an ungated, open marina. I now live in a marina that is basically a gated community, and I'm glad.

What kind of Accreditation do they/SLU, provide their students? As too why did your friend pick that particular place in his choosing?

"Actually,

I do! And, yes! I possess the appropriated DvD "Serenity!" "Would you like to borrow the DvD?"

As to that, of the Chinese Syntax - Unfortunately, in this regard, I would not be found being of any particular use too you!

Yes, I've been observing your responses/reply's. And, in doing so, I'm not going to Play the Game, that you've been found/and continue to play!

Goodbye!
