I just spent a quick two days on the island. After one day walking around town and biking up and down the island, I sensed something different.... but I thought it had to be my imagination. I kept listening and noticing it, but didn't say anything.
Finally, my buddy with me (who's been twice on the island), said what I was thinking:
"Is it just me, or do more people seem to be speaking Spanish this time around instead of Creole?"
Crazy question, I know, but since we both wondered that, I thought I'd post for your opinions.
FYI, my last two trips were in January and April of this year, and my buddy's last two trips were in January '06 and April '05.
