I was supposed to tell you about Martinique yesterday, but I have been rushing all day.
The island is 425 sq miles (1102 square km)
It's 49,71 miles (80km) long and 24,23 miles (39 km) wide
The population is approximately 426 000
The official language is French, but creole is widely spoken
I am staying with a friend of mine who lives in Schoelcher, close to Fort-de-France (the capital).
