Highlights of week 3

This week we discovered all the wildlife of the Rodriguez Island, including the local Spiders that are as big as my hand.

The highlights of the first week

After leaving Paris as everyone is returning to the city to go back to work or school, we take a train and 2 planes to arrive on the tiny island of Rodriguez, know as the No Stress Island. The sun is shinning, its at least 25 degrees (not bad for the winter) people are smiling, we are welcomed with coconuts...
