Episode # 2 : Choubaka visits Marie-Galante
Choubaka leaves to discover this large patty of 15km in diameter, floating off Guadeloupe. The island now has just over 12,000 inhabitants, spread over 3 municipalities: Capesterre, Grand-Bourg and Saint-Louis. The population is rural and its economy remains mainly oriented towards agriculture. The cultivation of sugar cane is predominant with 3 distilleries and a sugar factory.

The interior features rolling countryside, picturesque landscapes, mixing sugar cane fields, forests and mangroves. There is no shortage of activities and Choubaka is spoiled for choice … following the next episode.
