Guadeloupe

What a lovely welcome in French speaking Guadeloupe! We left the ship and immediately heard a Caribbean band, then a hugely friendly lady at the information office gave us a free hat and map.
As we walked around the town we saw lots of ladies and children dressed in exactly the same material, so we felt right at home.
Daz also had a lovely time sampling and buying mango and passion fruit flavoured rum in the town centre market. The rum bottles also had little hats made of the bright tartan fabric.
Later we went out to sample the local rum in a bar, just as a band started playing. We stayed for a happy while and then headed back to the ship, past some brilliant murals.
Ps, apparently there are also great beaches in Guadeloupe but we didn't quite get around to finding them.
