This blog on New Caledonia is for those of you who ever wondered what life on a tiny island in the South Pacific might be like. Tired of bracing winter winds, the stress of an inner city or simply dreaming of a life change? This is a blog about what happens when, in the words of Yogi Berra, "you come to a fork in the road, [and] take it".

Dancing with Fire at the Phare Amédée

After lunch at the Phare Amédée in January, we were treated to a show of South Pacific folklore dancing. This wonderful show highlighted beautiful young women in grass skirts along with a young Melanesian who flirted with fire. The show made me think I was in another world, living another life.

I was afraid to come to paradise, due to the plentitude of dangerous creatures you've described. But this dangerous creature has me running to the airport. Ha-Cha-Cha!!!
