Thursday, May 2nd, 2002 - Important Tip: Sheets!
Saint Maarten, Netherlands Antilles

Curt and I traipsed through Phillipsburg in search of sheets and towels. What an adventure that was. No Targets on Saint Maarten. We actually ended up finding a store similar to a Costco where we found lots of things we needed, as well as Rams… your basic type of supermarket. Sheets were a challenge, and when we finally found some in a funky little five and dime on a side street, we didn't bother to read the fabric content. 50% cotton and 50% Polyester didn't mean much at home, but in the tropics… trust me- you want nothing but cotton, cotton, COTTON! So while my night's sleep should've been better than the previous- it was only a slight improvement. I vowed to find proper sheets the next day.
