Je suis en Nouvelle-Calédonie

First, the airport here has free wireless internet. Even if it wasn’t a nice airport (which it is) that alone would make it the best airport in the Pacific.

Once again, the French are the biggest sticklers at Immigration check in.

I’m off to find a place to stay (yeah, I don’t have that yet. I just sort of trust that here in the French summer is not the peak of the tourist season)

My plan for the next few days is to explore the environs of the city and try to eat some descent French food. No big trips into the heart of the island are planned…but you never know.

I once again have to deal with the dreaded Pacific Franc (XPF).
