At anchor: Noumea, New Caledonia

September 3rd, 2011 · No Comments

Now in the centre of Noumea, New Caledonia in the Port Moselle Marina. Enjoying all the street activities linked with the Pacific Games. Caught a concert by Gulaan on Friday. Definitely local music origins but combined with western folk music try I think this is about what Mike Chapman would have sounded like if he had been born out here as a local Kanak. Lots of dancing in the street especially in the central part. Treated to a range of Polynesian dances and a martial art accompanied by local instruments. Martial art was non contact – you swing feet and arms bodies as close as you can to your partner without hitting them! This is the mid weekend so can expect more of the same.

We have a local mobile +687 908145 (note the country code is very similar to Vanuatu which was 678). Skype to mobile phone is 27p for first minute then 25p. Position: 22°17’S 166°26’E [-22.277,166.44]
