Too Close?

There's a bar in Sint Maarten that is very close to the airport runway. So close, in fact, that signs warn of death and dismemberment caused by the jet blast. Of course, everybody ignores the signs. It's quite a thrill to see these huge planes coming in right overhead.

We are leaving this afternoon for the USVIs and our appointment with Rose and Stephen.

The Myth Busters proved this to be a serious problem. Besides dismembership there is also the chance of being burnt to a crisp. Turns out jet exhaust is hot. Go figure.
