Meeting a Korean Friend in Saint Croix

Buck Island National Park, Saint Croix, US Virgin Island

(June 2018) When we were in Saint Croix three years ago, we met a Korean woman, Mia and her husband, Tommy. They built a beautiful waterfront house in St. Croix after retiring from Kentucky in the USA. They love SCUBA diving and an island life style. “Call us when you visit St. Croix again!” That was three years ago. At that time, I didn’t think it was going to happen.

We came to Saint Croix this time because we have some items to be delivered by the US Postal Service. Saint Croix is one of the United States Virgin Islands so it is easy to ship from the States. Being here, we visited Mia and Tommy’s house and enjoyed Mia’s Korean dishes and American steak. She even made “Kimchi” and packed some for us. Another day, all of us went to Buck Island National Park and had Korean Pork BBQ after snorkeling in the turquoise blue water. They stayed overnight on our boat. Our conversation continued till late watching stars together. After so long not speaking in Korean, I enjoyed talking in my mother language.
