t a special event held
last Tuesday evening,
A Saint Barth Properties
announced its affiliation with
Sotheby's International Real-
ty, the high-end real estate
arm of Sotheby's, a well-
respected auction house estab-
lished in 1744. This affiliation
relates to the real estate
agency in Saint Barth created
by its president, Peg Walsh,
and was motivated by the
company's continued growth
over the past five years. Tom
Smyth, vice-president of Saint
Barth Properties, sees this
recently concluded agreement
as a means to move up a
notch, taking the agency onto

an international level, while
maintaining the philosophy of
the company... confidence,
client respect, and high-level
products. "In the real estate
market that interests us, many
clients own, or are looking to
own, properties in several
locations. Like in the business
world, they gravitate toward a
serious intermediary they can
trust, and who offers quality
service. On this front, Sothe-
by's is synonymous with lux-
ury real estate, and via their
network we are now affiliated
with 300 other agencies
-l. tighi 'ul the world. At the
same time, for those wishing
to sell a property, our affilia-

tion with this network seri-
ously increases the opportuni-

Cassiopee : A Carnival Star

Saint Barth is gearing up
for this year's Mardi Gras
celebration on Tuesday.
After months of
preparation, the curtain
will finally go up on the
newest version of the
wildly successful costumes
created each year by the
association, Cassiop.e.

Suspense is in the air, but
everyone must wait until
Tuesday, February 28, to
discover the new costumes
created by the association,
Cassiop6e, with an eye
toward brightly colored
musical ambiance. As he
does every year, Bertrand,
the leader of the group, jeal-
ously keeps his cards close
to his chest, and has not
revealed the theme chosen
for their seventh Carnival

sense of mystery. "It will be
simply magical," confides
Bertrand, who serves as
artistic director for the
group. From selecting the
theme to choosing the
music and i'chli'.,i'\ :.
preparations last for almost
a year. As soon as one Car-
nival is over, Bertrand
begins thinking about the
next one: he designs the
costumes, which are then

selected by the members.
Pascale, who has been his
assistant since the group
was formed, is responsible
for buying the fabrics and
accessories needed to make
the costumes. "We know
the sizes and measurements
of all the members, from
head to toe," says Bertrand,
smiling. They usually find
the fabulous treasures they
need in France, such as the
hundreds of feathers that
have to be tinted, sized, or
curled, as they were last
year when the costumes
were a big success. They
work by group for weeks at
a time, under the watchful
eye of a group leader: with
everyone cutting, ,.,. nv.
soldering or gluing. The job
is monumental. Kim, their
choreographer, is in charge
of rehearsals and ensures
the coordination of the per-
formance aspects. Only one
rehearsal takes place in full
costume, mostly to prevent
unfortunate accidents that
would be hard to repair. On
Tuesday, it's show time and
the theme will finally be
revealed, and Bertrand and
his group will once again
show off their talents as
they parade through the

Fiber optic cable : Guadeloupe to Puerto Rico

Alcatel, a world leader
in optical networks,
and Global Caribbean
Network, the company respon-
sible for the realization of the
project, announced on Febru-
ary 10 that work is to begin on
the installation of the new
fiber-optic cable underwritten
by the Conseil R6gional of
Guadeloupe. Offering a top
capacity 1 Tera Bits/second,
this new high-speed telecom-
munications network (GCN-1) will
connect the islands of the Guadeloupe
archipelago to the worldwide Internet
backbone via Puerto Rico, with a dig-
ital spur linking to Saint Barth, allow-
ing the island to connect directly to
the fiber-optic network for the first
time. The 890 kilometers of cable
needed for the job where wound onto
Alcatel's cable ship in France, and
last Monday the ship set out from
Baillif on the main island of Guade-


loupe and headed toward Saint Kitts,
where a "branching unit," will be
placed, in keeping with a regional
agreement of cooperation. Next, the
ship will continue on its itinerary
toward Saint Martin, another "node"
for the network. Since the ship moves
at a speed of three to five knots per
hour, it was expected to arrive in
Saint Martin after February 21. The
schedule set by Global Carribean
Network puts the ship in Saint Barth

La Bouillabaisse Marseille:

La Bouillabaisse, the most typical dish of Marseille, was originally
a fisherman's dish. While sorting out the fish intended to be sold
they used to put aside certain species which they would then
prepare for their families and themselves. It is a very simple family
dish which has evolved over the years.

Today there is a Bouillabaisse Chart that includes precise
ingredients which are important to maintain tradition
while respecting the culinary art of the Chef.

La Bouillabaisse Marseille must consist of at least 4 types
of Mediterranean rock fishes: scorpion fish, white scorpion fish,
red mullet, skate, conger eel, john Dory, cigale de Mer (Mediterranean
crustacean resembling a lobster) or spiny lobster.

The Bouillabaisse is served in two servings, the fresh fish soup
and the whole cooked fish.
There is, however, one fundamental rule: the fish must be cut up in
front of the guests. La Rouille, which is a typical sauce, accompanied
with croutons to be served both with the soup and the fish.

You can enjoy la Bouillabaisse Marseille at Restaurant des Pecheurs
where traditional Marseille Bouillabaisse is served for lunch and
dinner each friday.

Sister Agnes: Hostage in Haiti

Sister Agnes, an 85 year-
old French nun from the
Dominican order, was
kidnapped and held for
48 hours in a slum of
Haiti, last January 25-27.
While visiting friends
in Saint Martin, she told
her tale.

Composed, bright-eyed and
smiling spontaneously, Sis-
ter Agnes did not seem
traumatized by her experi-
ence, in contrast to her two
companions. "We were
driving on a road not far
from the airport, when
some young men with guns
stopped us. That is when it
all began. I was taken
along with Jean and Blan-
dine, but we were separated
very quickly," says the nun,

who found herself with the
other hostages in a dark
room in the Cit6 Soleil, a

said they
were ', to kill me
and '

"As there was nothing to
do there, I suggested we
pass the time by teaching
each other our mutual lan-
guages, Creole for them
and French for me. But
they took the others away
during the night and I
found myself alone," Taken
to another hideout in the
Cit6 Soleil, Sister Agnes
took her first ride on a
motorcycle, at 85 years old,
sandwiched between the
driver and another passen-
ger. But worse than the ride
was the menace of immedi-
ate death. ""They said they
were going to kill me and
put a blindfold on my eyes.
I told them I had to do it
correctly. I crossed my
hands across my chest and
repeated to myself, "Lord
Jesus, I am coming." I
waited a moment, then they

took off the blindfold,
laughing. I wasn't afraid.
After all, I am 85 years old
and would go strait to
During her kidnapping, the
nun prayed for her captors
as well as for Haiti, where
she has gone for the past 30
years. For three says she
stayed calm, attributing
that to prayers recited dur-
ing her detention. She
remembers the more than
acceptable number of mos-
quitoes, the lack of bath-
room facilities and espe-
cially that a resident of the
neighborhood gave her a
toothbrush through the
window grille. On the third
day, she was liberated in
the late afternoon, a few
hours before her col-
leagues. The original ran-
som that was demanded
was 150,000 dollars, but
the demands of the kidnap-
pers quickly decreased,
according to a spokesper-
son from the French for-
eign affairs office. Official-
ly, no ransom was paid.

Timepiece Wins Design Award

Jacob & Co. was honored by one ef
the .-. magazir
for the big, bold, design of its "Th(
World is' .. timepiece.

Travel + Leisure magazine present-
ed the New York-based company
with one of its 2006 Design
Awards during a cocktail reception
at Cedar Lake Theater in New
York City. The second annual com- t'
petition honored products and desti-
nations that underscore the signif-
cance of design in the traveler'\

Jacob Arabo's passion for jewelry
began early, when he was a young
boy growing up in Russia. After
migrating to the United States, Jacob,
age 16, enrolled in a jewelry design
course to develop his natural talents.
Immediately recognizing his obvious
gifts and ability, his instructors
encouraged him to leave the course.
Finally, in 1986, Jacob opened his
business and began designing prod-
ucts under his brand, JACOB & Co.
In 2002, Jacob launched his first entry
into this market with The Five Time
Zone Collection, which combined
bold primary colors with multiple
time zone tolhri1 H1 -1.\ The inspiration
for his first designs can be found in

I 1~
..~ ~
N -

the fast-paced, international lifestyles
of his clients for whom he said the
timepieces were created.
Jacob followed with two-and-three
time zone styles, as well as a new
Automatic Chronograph, which sig-
naled his move into more sophisticat-
ed movements. Again, the Chrono-
graph proved to have an audience
with both men and women, helping
his business to expand rapidly and
At the same time, the traditional Five
Time Zone styles became diversified,
adding softer, pastel colors and dia-
mond accents.
One of Jacob's most creative line

extensions was the development of
Ilic Five Time Zone, "The World is
; .urs" timepiece. This unique, bold
.ic\'gn turns the diamond dial into a
-. d map by using different colored
dwi.monds to form the continents and
-ceans. The combinations of
T designs within this style are end-
. 'less, and Jacob continues to
expand the design each year with
i ie use of arresting colors and differ-
ciii materials forming the map. This
I"iiepiece is currently viewing for
i!. vel and Leisure's prestigious 2006
S)cign Award, which is voted on by
ii. lmy of the world's leading architects
and designers (decision made in
March 2006).
Having expressed himself and his
brand in the "fashion" timepiece cate-
gory, Jacob then turned his attention
to serious, complicated watch-mak-
ing. At the end of 2005, the first
pieces from his new limited editions
arrived in the world markets, marking
the introduction of three "world fi I,"
in the men's complications category.
Jacob's innovation in the field of
Swiss watch-making continues for
both men's and women's styles. He is
."iiiiiiilIcd to creating unique, wear-
able timepieces, which shatter the sta-
tus quo and provide innovation with
both intrinsic and experiential value.

ARIES (March 21- April 19) :
Thursday and Friday find you
flexing your muscles, getting
things done and polishing
your reputation. What you do
is almost as important as how
you do it. Saturday and Sun-
day, deliriously happy about
your recent successes, you
will want to get out a long
strip of butcher paper and map
out the rest of your life.

TAURUS (Apr. 21- may 21) :
A philosophical conversation
with an acquaintance on Wed-
nesday will be more useful
than you ever expected, and
Thursday and Friday find you
grounded, curious and happy.
And in the mood to travel.
You could use a vacation. Get
through the weekend -- of
power struggles and weird
interactions -- dreaming of
sandy beaches.

GEMINI (May 22-June 21) :
Thursday and Friday, your
interactions with others are
more difficult than usual,
especially interactions related
to business. Saturday and Sun-
day, you are submerged in big

CANCER (June 22-July 22) :
Thursday and Friday, don't
worry about doing very little
(what's on TV?). Saturday and
Sunday offer plenty of oppor-
tunities to see friends. Just be
careful you don't get into a
spat over money.

LEO (July 23-Aug 22): Thurs-
day morning, the fires will
have died out and you'll be
returned to everyday terrain,
albeit with a few embers glo-
wing in the corners. Friday,
you are preoccupied by others,
but this weekend your mind
returns to the topic of love.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 -Sept. 23) :
Thursday and Friday are
bright days filled with hot air
balloons and sweet romance.
Be open-minded this weekend
and you'll learn a fantastic and
effortless new way of doing
something that's always been a
pain in the neck.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 -Oct. 23) :
Thursday, you wake up feeling
weird for no discernable rea-

son, and Friday finds you fee-
ling nostalgic about nothing in
particular. The weekend offers
focus, romance and fun. You
and you-know-who are clearly
going to take over the world.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 Nov. 22):
Thursday and Friday, you are
shrewd, determined and in
control. Less can be said for
this weekend. There is tension
at home, and something
someone says may spark an
unexpected outburst. But look
on the bright side: At least it
will clear the air.

Dec. 21) : Thursday and Fri-
day, putting your eyeballs in
front of some art is a fine idea.
Stimulation is good. Original
thinking is good. Saturday and
Sunday, you talk so much -- to

CAPRICORN (Dec 22.- Jan.

of those who would take

Your accomplishments by
week's end are impressive, but
you've only just begun. This
weekend, you clear off the kit-
chen table and set to work on
a number of new plans.

PISCES (Feb. 20 March 20) :
Thursday and Friday, you
don't have to be as careful --
everything goes your way
naturally -- but pay extra
attention and take care to do
the right thing, and you'll
make major headway on seve-
ral plans you once thought
impossible. A friend is in need
of some help and might not
know how to ask for it. Antici-
pate this. Saturday and Sun-
day, you're in a giving mood
as well. Your advice is bril-
liant, so hand it out gene-
