A friend of mine told me the other day that he’s a Seychellois, which is a person from Seychelles. I didn’t know anything about it, so I did a little googling. I’m curious like that. I spend lots of time with Google.
So, in the interest of sharing the wealth, Seychelles is an island nation off the coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean. It’s northeast of Madagascar. According to travel sites, it looks a little something like this:
They pretty much had me at “Hello”. I have been dying to go some place sweaty, warm, and tropical for a while now. This looks like just the kind of spot. I can smell coconuts just thinking about it. Of course, I’m not sure there are any coconuts there, but you know what I mean. I wish I could run away and live on a tropical island.
Then he tells me that the sea turtle is the national mascot, or something, and does it get any better than that?
