Travel photos : Guadeloupe 2007 : Basse-Terre


Basse-Terre is the capital of the Department of Guadeloupe although it's nor the main economical hub nor the biggest city on the island (the hub is Pointe-à-Pitre while Les Abymes next to it is largest in population).

It was quit quiet in Basse-Terre on Saturday afternoon. We visited a small restaurant and had some dinner and walked around the empty streets to find a hotel or guesthouse. As we didn't find one but happened to see a bus leaving to Saint-Claude we decided to move on there. At least I knew that there was one hotel.
