Christmas Recap- Père Noël

On christmas day, Fred and I headed for the beach. As we walked along we saw this mass of people, mostly wearing white coming towards us. At first, Fred thought it was a funeral procession, but as they got closer, the children in the group sprinted out ahead smiling and giggling. Just to our right, Santa was arriving on a boat, got out and started handing out treats of some sort (we were not close enough to see just what). Then the whole procession with Santa headed back off to the left. An ice cream truck complete with ice cream truck music followed the, Christmas Mauritian style.  

So cool. I love the surprises here- everything is a new experience- even former Turkish monk- St. Nick.
