Jaro and the Dodo bird........

The local brew is quite good, and I am well stocked now.

Rode to the high-altitude town of Cilaos.... and the BEST wall poster I've seen so far!

Here in Reunion, I don't have a whole suite to myself - just a bedroom. The rest is shared with an older couple and a 17-year old university student, whom also have bedrooms on the floor.
I am paying 320 euros a month - roughly what you might pay for a single night at a good Paris hotel.

In Mauritius, I will have a private suite, but a bit more expensive, of course.

We share the kitchen.  It is not as bad as you might think, because local folks like to have supper very late - like 8:30 to 9:00 - whereas I prefer earlier, so that I can get a good rest after the bike ride and also the long walk (1hr) back from the Mediatheque where I get my WiFi connection (also usually stop along the way for a bit of grocery shopping).  The kitchen is quite well equipped, except for the toaster, which I had to buy - people here generally don't eat toasted bread, just baguettes.

The newest resident of the house...
