We are in Guadeloupe

We arrived in Pointe a Pitre late on Nov 17. Our first flight left washington dulles at 6am bound for miami. We had a two hour layover for our flight to san juan Puerto Rico. In PR we had a 6 hour layover so we went to old san juan. It sure beats sitting in the airport!

Today we walked to Fort Napoleon

 It’s already our third day here in TDH. We’ve been enjoying our time here poking around the shops watching the tour boats arrive and generally just watching the local action. It’s surprisingly busy here in Bourg since the population on the island is so small!
Our meals have been very good but the costs add up when we are spending 50+ euro for lunches and dinners. Today we decided to buy the ingrdients to make our own sandwiches which was fun BUT we can get the same type of lunch for cheaper made fresh to order. Oh well live and learn and take it all in stride!
