So when the invitation to visit arrived, I jumped at the chance. That first morning, I’m struck by the dichotomy of Martinique: With its undulating terrain, roadside fruit stalls and tracts of sugar cane intersected by winding roads (some so hilly they change the orientation on my iPhone), the tiny isle first appears as Caribbean as any other.
