    Hello MrBill. Did you notice if there were any small colleges or universities on the island? Thanks!

    U have a good sense of humor. That's really nice :-) I met a lady from Reunion when I was in Moorea. Hence, was simply wondering what it's like. Certainly not expecting those "wildlife" ;-)

    I love, orchids and would love to see them growing in the wild. I was disapointed in your food reviews. 12 years ago, I had fantastic food-a spicey seafood dish-- in Nice at a restaurant owned by Reunion couple.

    Much more beautifull than Mauritius, but I can't understand the Novotel at 300€/day can be the best hotel on the island. For that price you get a 5 star in Mauritius.

    hey, they're not all orchids, although I have to admit they ARE kind of wild!

    I only stayed at Reunion for a day and a half. We took a ride around the island and up to the volcano. A beautiful island, I would have been happy to stay there much longer.
