A postcard from St.Kitts and Nevis

St. Kitts and Nevis is a federal two-island country in the West Indies. It is the smallest sovereign state in the Americas, in both area and population. The islands were among the first in the Caribbean to be settled by Europeans. Saint Kitts was home to the first English and French colonies in the Caribbean, and thus has also been titled "The Mother Colony of the West Indies".

Historically, the British dependency of Anguilla was also a part of this union, which was then known collectively as Saint Christopher-Nevis-Anguilla [source: Wikipedia]
