The first day we have been able to leave Gratis. 30 knot winds and the showers have died down.

Not having a good run with the internet. It is down on Direction Island, so we have to travel to either Home or West Islands. By the time we have travelled to and from, plus the slowness of the connections, it is impossible to do major picture and spiel uploads.

At this stage we have almost completed the spiel for our trip here, but can’t promise when it will be uploaded for you to read.

Hopefully things will improve when we arrive in Mauritius.
