Ok! We are on the move. Clearly. Destination the island of” la Reunion ” for a family gathering ( reunion) to celebrate my nephew’s union with lovely Muriel . Lots of “ion” in this story. To celebrate our arrival the island famous volcano ” Piton the la Fournaise is in full eruption.
It only took 18 hours in the sky plus 10 hours layover to get there . But here we are . Housed in a beautiful villa above the Saint Gilles bay facing the sunset waters that hide Madagascar 600 miles away. It’s hot but it has been raining off and on here. I was up at five ( typical) and witnessed the sunrise over the mountains. Now the natives will have to recon with this event: The Louis have arrived and with us, the sunshine. Beware gentle island folks we are here to PARRTYyyy. Let the festivities commence
