Logbook: Arrival on St. Thomas
Bad weather, tropical storms and natural disasters were commonplace in A.H. Riise’s time. While the young A.H. Riise waited impatiently for permission to make the voyage to St. Thomas, the island was subjected to one of the most powerful hurricanes in its history. In August 1837, most of Charlotte Amalie, the main town on St. Thomas, lay in ruins. The Danish colonists did not however hang around in rebuilding the town, and soon Charlotte Amalie was once again ready to bask in the tropical sunshine. A.H. Riise wondered a little upon his arrival at finding a completely new, modern town rather than the sleepy, primitive, tumbledown settlement he had expected, but now both Riise and the town were ready for their great rum adventure.
