Bonjour, Nouvelle-Calédonie!

No, don’t worry, I will not continue writing in French… I don’t have much to write yet anyway, having arrived less than 24 hours ago at Tontouta airport.

All I can say is that things have been going smoothly so far. And I am looking forward to a first rendezvous this afternoon: the local ornithologists of the Société Calédonienne d’Ornithologie (SCO) are organising a field trip in search of a very special bird. In order to keep you interested, I won’t spill the beans just yet… 😉

On the above picture, by the way, you can see a typical New Caledonian scene: sun, beautiful trees, a well-maintained picnic area, a rental car (white, fairly new, despite its appearance no 4WD), and a friendly dog with funny ears. Not bad for starters, I’d say.

However, I’m hoping to see even more exciting things over the next five and a half weeks here in this wonderful archipelago! Be assured that I’ll keep you posted, quite literally.
