Charlotte Amalie

Our next stop was in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands. These islands belong to Denmark until 1916 when they were sold to the USA.  I wonder if they now regret that but at the time the  economics, complications with WW 1 and security issues led to the sale.

The town is named after the queen of Denmark.

Colonial architecture still features.

The Danes used it as a trading post so warehouses feature.

Banks of course.
