I had a dream

Guadeloupe standard of living is among the highest in the eastern Caribbean. Bananas and sugarcane are the principal cash crops. Tourism is one of the strongest sources of income. Still, high prices due to the protected French market are among the causes for the weak economic improvement of the last decades. Guadeloupe is a place of contrasts, where pockets of poverty and neglected infrastructures are interspersed between amazing nature and friendly people.
