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".

Ouvéa: Bread Delivery

Photo by Laurent Guiader, 2006.

Bread is delivered on Ouvéa as it is in other remote parts on New Caledonia's mainland. What with bakeries few and far between, short opening hours, and even fewer roads to get to the few bakeries open for an hour here and there, bread is delivered to little boxes such as these. At first I thought this box was for the mail, but no. It is for the bread (fresh baguettes) - which no French man or woman can live without - delivered daily.

Ruth and I have a story that we like to call "Bird Bread!"
(We ate it anyway!)

What a fantastic idea! Do they deliver to the U.S?
