They said it would take
100 days. On Sunday,
May 13, just before
2 1T 'pui, Graham Walters-
who will be 60 in two
months-landed on the
beach in Saint Jean, com-
pleting a 100-day adventure
of rowing across the Atlantic
Ocean. This Englishman, a
veteran of three Atlantic
crossings, left the beach of
La Gomera in Tenerife in the
Canary Islands on January
22. He had planned to arrive
in Antigua, a popular desti-
nation for this kind of event.
But the winds and water cur-
rents decided ili'c!. i,'c and
carried him to Saint Barth.
Patrick Laplace was anchor-
ing near Ilet Tourue when he
spotted Walters, and called
others to create a small wel-
coming committee for this
man who appeared quite
unexpectedly on our shores.

Weighing more than 40
pounds less than when he
started, Walters arrived in
good shape, sun tanned, with
a smile on his lips and the
muscles needed to row the


almost 3,000 miles that sepa-
rate the Canary Islands from
Saint Barth. His legs buckled
when he stood on dry land,
proof of the feat he has just
accomplished: to row across
the Atlantic in a small boat
just 15' long. This little boat
has quite a history, as its first
two owners, David John-
stone and John Hoare, disap-
peared in 1966. These two
English journalists attempted
the first rowing trip across
the Atlantic in the 20th cen-
tury aboard Puffin, the boat
Graham rowed on his jour-
ney. They had left Virginia


The, real meal 100 days at sea. Patrick Laplace, who
... .. Graham anchored by the islet of Tortue and who
accompanied him as far as his on Saint Jean beach,
cooked him some mahi-mahi. Graham and his boat, /' were
then towed to the Quai General de C in Gustavia where
they awaited the arrival of mayor Bruno Magras.


Beach in the US on May 21,
1996, and were headed to
the English shore. They nev-
er arrived. Puffin was found
in the middle of the Atlantic
with the diary the journalists
had left behind. Walters ded-
icated his expedition to
them, and took their journal
on his trip, reading a differ-
ent passage every day. "I
was looking for their
ghosts," he admits, "But I
did not meet them."

Walters began this project
three years ago, right after he
saw Puffin for the first time.
He -hl 'ii ul that the 40 year-
old boat was more than an
antique when he discovered
its excellent condition. He
had to convince the directors
of the Maritime Museum in
Exeter to allow him to use
the boat "to write another
chapter in its history."
Which he did!

A Carpenter On Land

A carpenter by trade, Gra-
ham Walters is from Leices-
ter, the mecca of English
sports and especially rowing,
where training takes place
on the Soar River. It is here
that Walters learned to row
at an early age. And it was

the ocean crossing he
rowed for eight hours per

rations of freeze-dried
food made up the main
portion of his diet,with an
occasional fish, "but very
rarely as they were not

not see any sharks, or
anything scary, which is
good as he did have to
dive into the ocean to
check the condition of the
hull. He did see a whale
in the midde of the Atal-
ntic. "The ocean was full
of plankton," says Wal-
ters. "It was like a multi-
tude of Christmas light."
As for the weather: he
had a barometer, and also

Atlantic according to Kenneth Crutchlow, director
of the Ocean Rowing Society International, which
helped with the organization of Graham Walters's
expedition. For Crutchlow, who points out that
thousands of climbers have reached the peak of
Mount Everest, rowing across the ocean remains
one of the hardest challenges in the world.

For Walters, this marked
his 4th transatlantic cross-

last in 2003 to reach
(without success) the
Panama Canal (he got as
far as Bermuda...). This
time, aboard a 2.5 ton
row boat that is 40 years
old, was undoubtably the
hardest: "It "surfs" a lot
less than a modern boat
and it sits lower in the
water. It is very hard to
row." Upon arrival, Wal-
ters stated that this was
his last transatlantic
crossing.
Last Wednesday, Puffin
was still in Saint Barth,
waiting to be towed to
Antigua where Graham
wants the boat to be on
display. Perhaps at the

former British port of

Gli Gli In Siu-Ba, li

Three Days Dedicated To Carib Culture


In Guyana and the southern
Antilles, where their ancestors
lived more than 1000 years ago,
there are but 25,000 Carib Indians
remaining. In Dominica, their second
largest territory, there are approxi-
mately 3,600. They are sad that their
history has been all but forgotten; the
history of the first people to -iik' in
the Caribbean who are still living
today. Other cultures, such as the
Arawaks, who visited Saint Barth as
they inhabited the Northern Islands,
and the Tainos who lived in the
Greater Antilles, were destroyed after
the arrival of the Spanish.
The goal of the Gli Gli (whose name
is a Caribbean bird used on a totem
for bravery) is to recall the existence
and history of the Caribs. The project
was launched 10 years ago, but began
with a meeting in Dominica in 1994
between Tortola artist Aragorn Dick-
Read and a Carib artist Jacob Freder-
ick, both interested in the art and cul-
ture f the Caribs. Jacob had a dream
since he was a child: to retrace the


path by which his ancestors arrived
in Dominica. This dream became a
reality with the Gli Gli project,
which included the construction of
a large Carib canoe, and the idea to
retrace the path in the opposite
direction, from Dominica to Guyu-
na, via all of the islands along the
way, to meet all the Caribs who
still live in the region. The journey
was captured on film in the BBC
documentary "The
bI"r 1 Quest Of The Carib
Canoe."
At the end of the first
voyage, Gli Gli was ^
taken to Tortola, where
maintenance and care
was easier than in
Dominica. Then, a little
over a year ago, the
canoe went to Antigua to
-. participate in a nautical
I parade during the
Antigua Classic Yacht
Regatta.

Gli Gli,
the Second Vovage!
Those responsible for the
second voyage of Gli Gli
went to Antigua on Sun-
day May 6. A total of 17
people, including 11 rep-
resentatives of the Carib
community in Dominica,
set out on the pirogue
while the rest of the crew


were aboard the schooner, Fiddler's
Green. The expedition was organized
to celebrate Gli Gli's 10 anniversary
and the renaissance of Carib culture
that is beginning to echo through the
regional islands.
After making a stop in Saint Kitts,
then Nevis, the boat arrived in Saint
Barth last Sunday after approximately
six hours of navigation. A welcome
committee included members of the
local UNESCO Club and its president
Daniel Blanchard. Events included
the sale of local products, a look at
the boats at the sailing school in Pub-
lic, a lecture at the Capitainerie-
where the BBC film was also
screened. When the GLI Gli headed
toward Saint Martin, it proudly flew
the colors of the Carib Indians.

Canalsat Caraibes Changes Satellites

Dishes To Be Redirected


specially trained tech-
nicians will take care
of the free reposition-
ing of satellite dishes for
the 200,000 subscribers in
the Antilles and Guyana
(3,000 in Saint-Barth), an
operation necessary for the
new satellite used by Canal-
Sat Caraibes. This should
be easy to accomplish but
for the company, this is a
big job that began about
two weeks ago, that date
that the new satellite, Intel-
Sat 903, was activated. And
the job absolutely must be
finished in six months, by
the end of October, after
which time the old satellite,
IntelSat 801, will no longer


work. In the meantime and
until all subscribers have
been transferred, the range
of programs will be broad-
cast by both satellites. This
is the first time such a thing
has occurred, and serves as
a test for the future merger
of TPS and Canal Plus onto
the same satellite (a project
that concerns 1.2 million
subscribers in metropolitan
France). Over 200 techni-
cians have been specially
trained for the Antilles-
Guyane region. In Saint-
Barth, where the redirection
of the satellite dishes is the
realm of Courants Faibles,
four additional crew were
recruited.


Why?
Why change satellites? "First
because the IntelSat 801(launched in
March 1997 by an Ariane missile) is
outdated. It also ran into some tech-
nical problems and there is not
enough space for future develop-
ment, such as the addition of new
channels and high definition broad-
casts. Finally, the orbit of the new
satellite, IntelSat 903, is closer to the
Caribbean zone, so that the broad-
cast quality will be better. We also
hope to avoid the instance of lost
images during rain storms or when
there are heavy cloud formations,"
says Jean-Michel Boudet, director of
CanalSat Antilles-Guyane,.

How Will This Happen?
You don't have to do anything. Eight
days before the technical crew arri-
ves in your neighborhood, a date will
be suggested by telephone and
confirmed by a text message.


A New Deal
CanalSat Caraibes has signed an
agreement with the post office
based on the routes of the mail deli-
very, allowing CanalSat Caraibes to
work by geographic area.

How Much Does That Cost?
The cost of this re-directional cam-
paign: "Between 8 and 8 million eru-
ros," says Jean-Michel director of
CanalSat Antilles-Guyane region
where most of the chabges will be
paid for by CanaSat Caraibes.

A Big Promotional Campaign
Promoted in newspaper ads, in an
informational spot on Canal + Evb-
nement, on the Internet, and in cer-
tain shops CanaSat Caraibes has
organized a contest like "Stop and
Run" in Martinique, Guadeloupe,
Saint Martin, and Guyana, and the
cherry on the cake are the two spots


by Omar and Fred, specialists in
satellite TV for Canal+ RFO, and
location stations. CanaSat Caraibes
wants to make sure all of its subs-
cribers are aware of the ongoing
changes.

Local TV Station In The Mix
A channel for Saint Barth anytime
soon? "Why not," asks Jean-Michel
Boudet, who pointed out the com-
pany's political philosophy a few
weeks after Canal 10 started to be
broadcast on CanalSat: "In every
collectivity, we have always hoped
to have parallel public and private
stations. In Guadeloupe, Canal 10
was the first to ask us and now has
a satellite, while Martinique is
represented by ATV. Guyana should
soon have its own satellite was well,
launched by AGG. Wht not Saint
Barth and Saint Martin? Good
question.

AIR QUALITY

FRoM AFRlcA
wad'Air, the organization
responsible for checking local
air quality, issued a press
release yesterday informing the local
population that clouds of sand from the
Sahara were in the skies over the West
Indies. These clouds caused the air
quality index to reach a maximum of
10, which means the air quality is very
bad. These sand clouds happen almost
every year at the same time, carrying
grains of sand that are less then 10
microns in diameter, which can cause
respiratory irritations (such as provok-
ing asthma attacks), and affect the eyes.
People who are susceptible (nursing
mothers, those with asthma or allergies,
senior citizens, heart patients...) might
experience nasal or respiratory prob-
lems due to this dust, or encounter seri-
ous l'ic.ing!i problems.

SERVICE ALWAYS INCLUDED

AT LOCAL RESTAURANTS


Requiring clients
to leave tips is
illegal in
France, and was point-
ed out as a bad local
habit some time ago.
Yet it seems to be a
continuing problem as
new accusations, with
proof (see photo) lead
us to believe that this


TOTAL :
lotal n Devise
Vos ave ete servis par
TIPS :.......
TOIAL :.....

Herci e votre vislte
97133 St Bartn
practice is more wide


spread than -h. iugili, in spite of being illegal.

In the case brought to our attention, the restau-
rant uses the same system as in the United Sates
where clients leave between 15 to 20% of the
bill as a tip for the service offered. Yet in
France, the prices "include service." In addi-
tion, it should be stated on the bill that the serv-
ice is actually included. In this case, the restau-
rant presented the bill with the line "TIPS"
under the total, leaving the clients to believe
that the system is the same in the United States,
and not mentioning that the service is already
included in the price of the meal, so that they
will leave a tip, when in reality, none is
required.

Service VS Tip
They must not be confused. Service is the "tax"
that a client pays in a restaurant for being
served. This goes into the salary paid to all of
the employees in the restaurant. A tip, in
France, is not an obligation, but a little extra in
appreciation of good service. There is no set
percentage for such a tip, and varies in function
to the service provided.


WINTER SALES
IN SUMMER

They happen here later than in
France, where the first annual
sales take place in mid-January,
but the "winter" sales has


begun in full force in Saint
Barth on Thursday, May 24,
and will last until June 31.
Many stores have slashed
prices by 30 to 50% and there
are plenty of good buys. The
second annual sales period will
take place between September
29 and October 27, 2006.

2 2 St Barth Weekly n¡121 WELCOME!The St. Barth Weekly is happy to be back for its fourth season. The Weekly is designed to help you put your finger on the pulse of the local community. Featuring an English rŽsumŽ of the top stories in our French newspaper, Le Journal de Saint Barth, as well as original articles in English, The St. Barth Weekly is the only completely English-language newspaper on the island. It is distributed on the island every week from November through the end of July. Our most exciting news is that each Friday, The Weekly is also available online at Saint Barth Online (www.stbarths.com), the wonderful web site launched in 1996, and now run by our friends Bruno and GŽraldine Colletas. Thanks to them, you can download every edition of The St. Barth Weekly, so that no matter where you are in the world, you can stay in touch with your favorite island. They said it would take 100 days. On Sunday, May 13, just before 2:30pm, Graham WaltersÑ who will be 60 in two monthsÑlanded on the beach in Saint Jean, completing a 100-day adventure of rowing across the Atlantic Ocean. This Englishman, a veteran of three Atlantic crossings, left the beach of La Gomera in Tenerife in the Canary Islands on January 22. He had planned to arrive in Antigua, a popular destination for this kind of event. But the winds and water currents decided otherwise and carried him to Saint Barth. Patrick Laplace was anchoring near Ilet Tourue when he spotted Walters, and called others to create a small welcoming committee for this man who appeared quite unexpectedly on our shores. Weighing more than 40 pounds less than when he started, Walters arrived in good shape, sun tanned, with a smile on his lips and the muscles needed to row the almost 3,000 miles that separate the Canary Islands from Saint Barth. His legs buckled when he stood on dry land, proof of the feat he has just accomplished: to row across the Atlantic in a small boat just 15'long. This little boat has quite a history, as its first two owners, David Johnstone and John Hoare, disappeared in 1966. These two English journalists attempted the first rowing trip across the Atlantic in the 20th century aboard Puffin, the boat Graham rowed on his journey. They had left Virginia Beach in the US on May 21, 1996, and were headed to the English shore. They never arrived. Puffin was found in the middle of the Atlantic with the diary the journalists had left behind. Walters dedicated his expedition to them, and took their journal on his trip, reading a different passage every day. "I was looking for their ghosts," he admits, "But I did not meet them." Walters began this project three years ago, right after he saw Puffin for the first time. He thought that the 40 yearold boat was more than an antique when he discovered its excellent condition. He had to convince the directors of the Maritime Museum in Exeter to allow him to use the boat "to write another chapter in its history." Which he did!ACarpenter On LandAcarpenter by trade, Graham Walters is from Leicester, the mecca of English sports and especially rowing, where training takes place on the Soar River. It is here that Walters learned to row at an early age. And it was Rowing Across The AtlanticThe first real meal after 100 days at sea. Patrick Laplace, who discovered Graham anchored by the islet of Tortue and who accompanied him as far as his landing on Saint Jean beach, cooked him some mahi-mahi. Graham and his boat, Puffin, were then towed to the Quai GŽnŽral de Gaulle in Gustavia where they awaited the arrival of mayor Bruno Magras.

on a scull that he prepared for his adventure, rowing two hours per day for three years. During the ocean crossing he rowed for eight hours per day. To drink, he had but a tiny quantity of desalinated water created via solar panels placed at the back of the plywood and fiberglass boat. 300 rations of freeze-dried food made up the main portion of his diet,with an occasional fish, "but very rarely as they were not biting," he says. He did not see any sharks, or anything scary, which is good as he did have to dive into the ocean to check the condition of the hull. He did see a whale in the midde of the Atalntic. "The ocean was full of plankton," says Walters. "It was like a multitude of Christmas light." As for the weather: he had a barometer, and also had a GPS aboard along with a satellite telephone with which he remained in contact with his wife once a week. For Walters, this marked his 4th transatlantic crossingÑtwo were races, the last in 2003 to reach (without success) the Panama Canal (he got as far as BermudaÉ). This time, aboard a 2.5 ton row boat that is 40 years old, was undoubtably the hardest: "It "surfs" a lot less than a modern boat and it sits lower in the water. It is very hard to row." Upon arrival, Walters stated that this was his last transatlantic crossing. Last Wednesday, Puffin was still in Saint Barth, waiting to be towed to Antigua where Graham wants the boat to be on display. Perhaps at the Dockyard Museum which retraces the history of the former British port of Saint John. Additional information can be found on the Internet at www.atlanticpuffin.co.uk Rowing Across The Atlantic The Story of Puffin 2.5 tons and just 15 feet. Ahull of plywood and fiberglass, which was revolutionary at the time, but rather heavy today: that is Puffin, the little boat that David Johnstone and John Hoare used in their fatal attempt to be the first to row across the Atlantic in the 20th century. In this picture, Puffin was photographed aboard the USS United States, which brought the boat to the US in late 1965 when the two men set off on their adventure. (Photo from Graham Walters'website: www.atlanticpuffin.co.uk) On October 14, 1966, the Canadian boat, Chaudiere, found Puffin drifting in the midAtlantic by. The men's journal was found intact, with the final entry made on September 3, when a force two wind was too strong to continue rowing. The wind, part of a hurricane, only got stronger. It is thought that the two men died in waves of 24 to 30 feet with winds between force 8 and 12. Now that Graham has given Puffin a new life, a new chapter in the boat's history is being written. (Photo from Graham Walters'website: atlanticpuffin.co.uk)4 4St Barth Weekly n¡121179179 is the number of rowers to have crossed the Atlantic according to Kenneth Crutchlow, director of the Ocean Rowing Society International, which helped with the organization of Graham Walters's expedition. For Crutchlow, who points out that thousands of climbers have reached the peak of Mount Everest, rowing across the ocean remains one of the hardest challenges in the world.

0 0 6 6St Barth Weekly n¡121In Guyana and the southern Antilles, where their ancestors lived more than 1000 years ago, there are but 25,000 Carib Indians remaining. In Dominica, their second largest territory, there are approximately 3,600. They are sad that their history has been all but forgotten; the history of the first people to settle in the Caribbean who are still living today. Other cultures, such as the Arawaks, who visited Saint Barth as they inhabited the Northern Islands, and the Ta•nos who lived in the Greater Antilles, were destroyed after the arrival of the Spanish. The goal of the Gli Gli (whose name is a Caribbean bird used on a totem for bravery) is to recall the existence and history of the Caribs. The project was launched 10 years ago, but began with a meeting in Dominica in 1994 between Tortola artist Aragorn DickRead and a Carib artist Jacob Frederick, both interested in the art and culture f the Caribs. Jacob had a dream since he was a child: to retrace the path by which his ancestors arrived in Dominica. This dream became a reality with the Gli Gli project, which included the construction of a large Carib canoe, and the idea to retrace the path in the opposite direction, from Dominica to Guyuna, via all of the islands along the way, to meet all the Caribs who still live in the region. The journey was captured on film in the BBC documentary "The Quest Of The Carib Canoe." At the end of the first voyage, Gli Gli was taken to Tortola, where maintenance and care was easier than in Dominica. Then, a little over a year ago, the canoe went to Antigua to participate in a nautical parade during the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta.Gli Gli, the Second V oyage! Those responsible for the second voyage of Gli Gli went to Antigua on Sunday May 6. Atotal of 17 people, including 11 representatives of the Carib community in Dominica, set out on the pirogue while the rest of the crew were aboard the schooner, Fiddler's Green. The expedition was organized to celebrate Gli Gli's 10 anniversary and the renaissance of Carib culture that is beginning to echo through the regional islands. After making a stop in Saint Kitts, then Nevis, the boat arrived in Saint Barth last Sunday after approximately six hours of navigation. Awelcome committee included members of the local UNESCO Club and its president Daniel Blanchard. Events included the sale of local products, a look at the boats at the sailing school in Public, a lecture at the CapitainerieÑ where the BBC film was also screened. When the GLI Gli headed toward Saint Martin, it proudly flew the colors of the Carib Indians. Gli Gli In Saint-Bar th Three Days Dedicated To Carib Culture

St Barth Weekly n¡1210 0 7 7Specially trained technicians will take care of the free repositioning of satellite dishes for the 200,000 subscribers in the Antilles and Guyana (3,000 in Saint-Barth), an operation necessary for the new satellite used by CanalSat Cara•bes. This should be easy to accomplish but for the company, this is a big job that began about two weeks ago, that date that the new satellite, IntelSat 903, was activated. And the job absolutely must be finished in six months, by the end of October, after which time the old satellite, IntelSat 801, will no longer work. In the meantime and until all subscribers have been transferred, the range of programs will be broadcast by both satellites. This is the first time such a thing has occurred, and serves as a test for the future merger of TPS and Canal Plus onto the same satellite (a project that concerns 1.2 million subscribers in metropolitan France). Over 200 technicians have been specially trained for the AntillesGuyane region. In SaintBarth, where the redirection of the satellite dishes is the realm of Courants Faibles, four additional crew were recruited. Canalsat Cara•bes Changes Satellites Dishes To Be Redirected Why?Why change satellites? "First because the IntelSat 801(launched in March 1997 by an Ariane missle) is outdated. It also ran into some technical problems and there is not enough space for future development, such as the addition of new channels and high definition broadcasts. Finally, the orbit of the new satellite, IntelSat 903, is closer to the Caribbean zone, so that the broadcast quality will be better. We also hope to avoid the instance of lost images during rain storms or when there are heavy cloud formations," says Jean-Michel Boudet, director of CanalSat Antilles-Guyane,. How Will This Happen?You don't have to do anything. Eight days before the technical crew arrives in your neighborhood, a date will be suggested by telephone and confirmed by a text message. A New DealCanalSat Cara•bes has signed an agreement with the post office based on the routes of the mail delivery, allowing CanalSat Cara•bes to work by geographic area.How Much Does That Cost?The cost of this re-directional campaign: "Between 8 and 8 million eruros," says Jean-Michel director of CanalSat Antilles-Guyane region where most of the chabges will be paid for by CanaSat Cara•bes. A Big Promotional CampaignPromoted in newspaper ads, in an informational spot on Canal + Evnement, on the Internet, and in certain shops CanaSat Cara•bes has organized a contest like "Stop and Run" in Martinique, Guadeloupe, Saint Martin, and Guyana, and the cherry on the cake are the two spots by Omar and Fred, specialists in satellite TV for Canal+ , RFO, and location stations. CanaSat Cara•bes wants to make sure all of its subscribers are aware of the ongoing changes. Local TV Station In The MixA channel for Saint Barth anytime soon? "Why not," asks Jean-Michel Boudet, who pointed out the company's political philosophy a few weeks after Canal 10 started to be broadcast on CanalSat: "In every collectivity, we have always hoped to have parallel public and private stations. In Guadeloupe, Canal 10 was the first to ask us and now has a satellite, while Martinique is represented by ATV. Guyana should soon have its own satellite was well, lauched by AGG. Wht not Saint Barth and Saint Martin? Good question. Stay in touchWHEREVER YOU ARE EVERY FRIDAYATwww.st-barths.com

0 0 8 8St Barth Weekly n¡121AIRQUALITYWORSENSWITHSANDFROMAFRICAGwad'Air, the organization responsible for checking local air quality, issued a press release yesterday informing the local population that clouds of sand from the Sahara were in the skies over the West Indies. These clouds caused the air quality index to reach a maximum of 10, which means the air quality is very bad. These sand clouds happen almost every year at the same time, carrying grains of sand that are less then 10 microns in diameter, which can cause respiratory irritations (such as provoking asthma attacks), and affect the eyes. People who are susceptible (nursing mothers, those with asthma or allergies, senior citizens, heart patients...) might experience nasal or respiratory problems due to this dust, or encounter serious breathing problems. The Restaurant des Pcheurs at the Sereno hotel has organized a theme evening for Saturday, May 19 at 7pm. After tasting wins from Bandol in Provence in March, this time the accent is on Italy, its cooking and its wines. Chef Jean-Luc Grabowski has created a special tasting menu based on certain wines and ingredients flown in direct from Italy via Rosario of Euro Gourmet. The wines include red, white, rosŽ, and Muscat (a sweet wine), which will accompnay ricotta gnocchis Osso Buco with fresh pasta, and a Sabayon with citrus fruit from Pantelleria, the Italian island where Giorgio Armani spends many of his vacations and which inspired his perfume, Acqua Di Gio. Agourmet event not to be missed. The non-profit association, Saint Barth Environnement, in collaboration with The British Council, presents a series of images on the theme of global warming, with texts by celebrities. The images were taken by the most well-known English photographers. From Greenland to South Africa, by way of China, the US, and various islands, this exhibit illustrates the reality of the effects of global warming. Suport for the exhibition comes from the association, the municipality, and the postal service. EXHIBITONGLOBALWARMINGATTHEGUSTAVIAPOSTOFFICE ITALIANEVENINGATTHERESTAURANTDESPæCHEURSSATURDAYEVENING

E E v v e eD D u u c c h h a a r r m m e eA A R R T T G G A A L L L L E E R R Y YBy appointment only Located in ToinyTel.: 0590278841presents Philippe Bertho SERVICEALWAYSINCLUDEDATLOCALRESTAURANTSRequiring clients to leave tips is illegal in France, and was pointed out as a bad local habit some time ago. Yet it seems to be a continuing problem as new accusations, with proof (see photo) lead us to believe that this practice is more wide spread than thought, in spite of being illegal. In the case brought to our attention, the restaurant uses the same system as in the United Sates where clients leave between 15 to 20% of the bill as a tip for the service offered. Yet in France, the prices "include service." In addition, it should be stated on the bill that the service is actually included. In this case, the restaurant presented the bill with the line "TIPS" under the total, leaving the clients to believe that the system is the same in the United States, and not mentioning that the service is already included in the price of the meal, so that they will leave a tip, when in reality, none is required. Ser vice VS T ip They must not be confused. Service is the "tax" that a client pays in a restaurant for being served. This goes into the salary paid to all of the employees in the restaurant. Atip, in France, is not an obligation, but a little extra in appreciation of good service. There is no set percentage for such a tip, and varies in function to the service provided. The pilot was alone on the American plane from M&N Aviation, coming from San Juan, when he experienced a flat tire after landing in Saint Barth and ending up sitting crosswise on the runway. He was not injured, but the runway remained closed more than a half-hour. The problem is the lack of towing equipment that would allow the runway to be clearer more quickly. Landing With AFlat Tire
