Pros Christmas

The Sound of Drums

That's what we awoke to this morning, moored in Noumea; a native welcome at the port right beneath our balcony. Noumea, in New Caledonia, is an interesting place. Hot, steamy - as one would expect in the tropics - and a laid-back culture that still closes at midday for siesta.

We took a bus tour which took us to a lookout providing a view of the city, then to Lemon Bay beach where we lunched before spending a lazy few hours in the water.
