On This Day . . .
Traveling further south we landed on Reunion an island, one of the 27 regions of France, on March 24, 2014. Our port of call was La Possession. Our tour today was to the center of the island to an elevation of 6,000 feet above sea level and above the clouds. On our way we traveled along the coast for awhile before we started our ascent through sugar cane fields and small towns with their provincial houses. After climbing up through the tree line we arrived at the summit. On our way back down we stopped at one of the geranium perfume distilleries that are in the area. In the afternoon we had a cultural show in the lounge on board the ship.
