Flew into Noumea 2 nights ago. It's expensive here and the town could be like anywhere in France. We went snorkeling on Duck Island off the coast yesterday (fish and coral were 9 out of 10 but the ocean is colder) and we wandered around town today. We decided to skip Auckland, NZ due to a fuel disruption at the airport and switched our flight to Wellington. We're also looking at Bali alternatives due to the Mt. Agung volcano eruption warnings. The last time it erupted 1000 people were killed and the Denpasar airport was closed for a week. If it happenes it could be similar in size to Mt. St. Helens (you wouldn't want be viewing it from the crater's edge).large_IMG_2066.jpglarge_IMG_2062.jpglarge_IMG_2059.jpglarge_90_IMG_2055.jpglarge_IMG_2047.jpglarge_IMG_2039.jpglarge_IMG_2036.jpglarge_IMG_2035.jpglarge_90_IMG_2026.jpg
