Fo Day Mahnin (Fō Dā Mänĭn)
Translation: Before Morning
The historical presence of Denmark lingers in the architecture and street names extant today on Main Street and Charlotte Amalie the capital of St. Thomas and the Virgin Islands of the United States of America. Before morning, Ama captures Dronningens Gade, Main Street as the island sleeps. The old brick and stone buildings hold the complex stories of pain and struggle of days gone by. Sometimes we do not get to appreciate the town until all the doors are closed and the people are asleep. Interestingly, some local Virgin Islanders at first glance asked if this is old-time St. Thomas because the beauty is invisible when the streets are buzzing with trade and commerce and doors are thrown open.
