Bonjour! This week’s carte postale was sent to me by one of my friends during her visit to the Caribbean island of Saint Martin:

St. Martin is an island nation divided between France and The Netherlands. The French side is on the north while the Dutch side, Sint Maarten, is on the southern half.

On September 6, 2017, St. Martin suffered one of the worst natural disasters of its history with the passage of Hurricane Irma. The St. Martin Tourist Office President states, “St. Martin is working hard on the sustainable reconstruction of the island.”

Until the next Wednesday Postcard, à bientôt!
