Here are some pics from our trip to Guadelupe. For some reason we don’t have pictures of us and the Richmonds! We were so busy we forgot!
Here we are wandering the streets trying to find our bed and breakfast hotel… After some time, and calling the place, it was determined that it was all Googles fault: we had gotten a map of the place so we thought we knew where it was…only it wasn’t! We did get to see the new apartment right in the city of Pointe-Pitre that Elders would be moving into soon. We finally gave up and went to our normal hotel. It was/is nice, but we were looking for something closer to the Richmonds and it looked good–it was just on the other side of the island… Here are some pics of the city, as we drove around with the Richmonds Lots of old, boarded-up shops around the city Occasionally you would see a city park most of the roads use round-about intersections, and you drive on the right, like in the USA (many of the islands drive on the left, like England) It rained like crazy while we were there! No wonder it is so green–much more tropical than St Martin!
It was a nice, thought short trip to Guadelupe. We will probably be traveling back here the end of December, and once or twice in January. Then another couple (who speak French) are supposed to come take over as the island couple.
