New Caledonia is currently undergoing a transition from French control to total autonomy. As such, New Caledonia is no longer a French Overseas Collectivity. Rather, New Caledonia enjoys a unique though temporary designation known as Special Collectivity.
As for Nouméa, Ursula and I found it to be a colorful destination to say the least. Even the graffiti is entertaining.
We spent much of the day walking around town, and you’ll see more of that on Wednesday. But as the day grew long and our feet grew tired we hopped a city bus and did headed to areas beyond the city proper.
We rode the bus to the end stop and then took it back into town. Along the way we got a look at some great beaches.
In town we found sights such as Moselle Bay.
I also enjoyed seeing the various automobiles used by the residents.
Until Wednesday I’ll leave you with two more shots of that exquisite street art.
