Now I understand why Gauguin had such a great paintings. This island is a beautiful place!

You have a wonderful gallery, I really enjoy it.

Cheers, Barbara

Thanks again, Barbara. Yes, it is truly a spectacular place. It is also nice that since it is so far off the beaten path -- and perhaps because they speak French there? -- it isn't overrun with tourists.
