Sugar Quest

The pre-christmas shopping frenzy has reached as far as the remote Gambier islands–everybody’s stocking up to bake and make pig champagne. The shops have been without sugar for a month, last time the supply ship arrived sugar was sold out within 2(!) hours. Yesterday the next one arrived and we started asking at the shops immediately, were sent away 3 times (not yet unpacked), but successful at the fourth attempt. Now we can bake christmas cookies :-)
Now that we’ve stocked up we’ll head out to a tiny little motu on the outer reef, to snorkel and relax :-)
