26 May 2011:

It was quite a long drive, and we talked a lot about life in general and life in NC, Guadaloupe, and French Guyana. Apparently things have changed a lot. Dominique also told me about how NC still runs on a "colonial" economy, as a few families control pretty much everything here, and according to him, price fixing is rampant. Also, I found it strange and for an island off the coast of Australia, most of the milk I saw here was imported from France.
