Just another tropical island

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.

Be good, all.

Here by Glimpses Known

For a glimpse, I leave you with the view we will have today as we take off from Mayotte. This is the Passe en "S" where we do most of our dives.  Petite Terre is in the background, and you can see the tip of Grande Terre on the left.
