When you come dive in the Caribbean... - don't hesitate going by martinique particularly the North, ST-PIERRE and CARBET to visit before the diving shops selling special "reading's candies" for 3 euros the unit. The first one is entitled "L'aventurière et l'héritier" and is pink-covered and the next to come out soon will be normally brown-covered and entitled "Week-ends en amoureux entre Paris et Londres".
