Martinique bliss

Guadeloupe

It was necessary for me to fly to Martinique last week to visit people who might have a job for me. Cool island, I think I might be preferring it to Guadeloupe. More expensive I think though, but I am so grateful to the French for propping up our standard of living with all the euros they pump into these islands just so that they can believe they still have an empire.

I do not know from where you come but the last statement is not true. Guadeloupe has rejected a statute of autonomy in 2010 and is a French d├ępartement with the worst level of unemployment in France, and no more subventions than any other d├ępartement. Unemployed people are helped exactly like they would be helped anywhere else in France, period.
