Hello from the steps of the Friedensthal Moravian Church in Christiansted, AyAy. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this mission church was founded by German Moravian brethren in the 1750s who named the area Estate Friedensthal, which translates to 'valley of peace' in German. It originally served as a Moravian mission, a church and a plantation, and ministered to enslaved Africans. The present church, built from 1852-54, is unaltered and features a masonry and wood pedimented entry porch. ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ

Any visitor may be a little confused as to why we regularly eat Salmon Balls (Frikadellar). After all Salmon is not a fish found in our waters. Salmon Balls are a subtle reminder of our #Danish past. These balls transport you to a time when Danish settlers had canned salmon regularly imported (canned fish is a regular feature of Danish cuisine). Nyam up. ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐ŸŸ (๐Ÿ“ธ @savorstcroix)

Congrats to Kyron McMaster for winning the gold medal in the 400 meter hurdles at the #Commonwealth Games. It was his tribute to Xaxior Samuels (pictured) who tragically lost his life during Hurricane Irma. This is resilience and excellence at its finest.

A beautiful sunset captured from the steps of Sts. Peter & Paul Catholic Cathedral on Kronprindsens Gade, Charlotte Amalie. The current structure of this Cathedral was completed in 1848. The Virgin Islands traditionally has been home to a sizable #Catholic population (25%), with 8 Catholic Churches in total, and with Sts. Peter & Paul being the #Episcopal seat to the bishop. How beautiful is this church? Itโ€™s a must see in person.

Was done with posting for the night...but I saw this floating around IG today, and wanted to hear some of your thoughts. I know VI people understand this sentiment. The amount of times Iโ€™ve heard other Caribbean nationals tell me that I am not West Indian because I am from an American territory..๐Ÿ˜’Never mind that one of our islands (STX) is one of the ONLY islands boarded by Caribbean Sea from all sides. And culturally, we are obviously very West Indian, but we tend to be disregarded at times. Thoughts? ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ฌ

#FBF Men in Frenchtown, a.k.a. Carenage, a.k.a. French Village, a.k.a Cha-Cha Town (please donโ€™t use this word as it is derogatory). The French settlers have been immigrating to St.Thomas from St.Barths since the 1800โ€™s and have been rooted on the island for generations. We have two distinct areas where those of French decent populate. One being in town, and the other being on the Northside. Like many islands in the Caribbean, we celebrate our diversity and those who have shaped our islands. We are all West Indians and more importantly, Virgin Islanders. Whether youโ€™re of African Decent, French, Spanish, Danish, Dutch, Indian, Jewish, or any combination of the aforementioned, youโ€™ll always find your home in the VI. ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ฌโค๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฑ

(Swipe) These are the Crucian Masqueraders. Believed to have been imported to the Virgin Islands in the 1800โ€™s with the cane laborers from the British Caribbean and have been a part of our culture ever since (albeit a lesser known aspect of our culture. These masqueraders donโ€™t perform very often). These masqueraders are similar to the ones found in #StKitts, #Nevis, #Antigua, #Grenada, #Montserrat, #Guadeloupe, #Bermuda & #Belize!

This Lutheran Church is St. Croixโ€™s oldest church, it was built around 1740 as the Dutch Reformed Church. Originally the Dutch Reformed Church, it was transferred to the Lutherans in 1834. Designed by #Dane Albert Lรธvmand, the offical architect for the Danish colonies at that time. Happy Easter! ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ
