creole colors

City Centre / Fort-de-France, Martinique
As an overseas department of France, Martinique's culture blends French and Caribbean influences with the city of Fort-de-France often referred to as the Paris of the Lesser Antilles. While I've yet to get to Paris, I expect there are some pretty substantial differences between the two! Typical of the Caribbean islands, the architecture though simple in form can be eye-popping in color.
