Human beings are odd creatures. If I were in the States or France right now, the prospect of going to Reunion Island would thrill me. Since I'm already living in the Indian Ocean--on a less-than-paradisiac island, it's true--it doesn't unduly excite me. I know I will enjoy myself once I'm there; I know I will see marvellous landscapes, for RI is gorgeous; I know I will eat scrumptuous cuisine, but it hasn't sunk in that I'm leaving in six hours. Hmm, I guess I should see to packing.
Anyhow, we'll be back on the 17th. I'll probably be able to check my mail on occasion, but I doubt I'll have time to read my flist or post.
