only with a passport
This picture was taken close to Princess Juliana Airport, the international airport of Saint Martin/ Sint Marteen.
I'n a world divided by boundaries, conflict, racism the island of Saint Martin/Sint Marteen present the specificity of being divided in two contry without custom. Peoples can use 3 currencies (Florin, Euro and US dollars) on both side of the island and are free to move whatever are their nationalities.
This island is a living example of a world without border and should probably be taken as a reference.
"only with a passeport" is a quotation from chaplin's movie "a king in New York"
"Am I free to travel?
Of course, you are free to travel!
Only with a passport!"
