Looks are still something

We've had a lovely wander around St Denis, the capital of Reunion, poking into backstreets and finding all sorts of pretty pastel-painted houses with shutters and dormer windows, fripperied up with fretwork lace under the eaves and wrought iron gates.

The people here in this little city are more varied than along the tourist strip by the lagoon, or in the mountain villages: Muslim men in robes and caps, splendid African ladies in colourful long dresses with scarves wrapped around their heads.

How dull it's going to be back at home, where everyone dresses the same.
