Colorful dresses and graceful silhouettes. In the background the exotic, Caribbean landscapes. A week on Guadeloupe surprises for its cultural diversity and lively ancient traditions. A historic representation of the Indian Ramayana myth welcomed me the day I landed. Brilliant graffiti cover walls and towns of the island. Wild sea shores and vivid sunsets: everything plays life on stage in Gwada.
