Yes, and posted earlier by Elaine in the "Post Irma List of Things open on SXM" thread.

Nice video.

Great video. We cancelled our upcoming trip a couple of weeks ago. This video cheered me up a bit.

Is this filmed before or after Hurricanes? Post Irma?

From the youtube page:
Please note...(this is for the previous comment that was placed) Most if not all of this footage was shot last week October 4th 2017, which is 4 weeks after hurricane Irma...and its simply showing the resolve of the Sint Maarten people, that yes we were hit terribly but we are determined to get back on our feet.

Amazing but if one were to only see this video it has the appearance of business is back to normal. I'm sorry but I think a deep breath needs to be taken while the residents are afforded the opportunity to get back on their feet. I can't imagine how incredibly difficult is has to be with no safe drinking water or electricity at the touch of a finger readily available. Heart breaking,

"Most" of the video was shot post hurricane??? I have trouble with this video - seeing food and working electricity when people are still waiting for running water, food supplies and even gasoline! Just sayin' :)
