I know you said you've been there before. On HGTV, at 10:30 PM on 8 December, they're doing an episode of International Househunters set in Seychelles. Not sure what island.

I have fondest memories of the place.

Aren't the Saychelles one of those places threatened by innundation if sea levels rise?

Yup! But I had a big boat.

Do the folks on the TV program know the house they are looking at may require a barn to house the whaleboat needed for themselves and two of every creature on the island?

Dunno....but it's a safe place since they locked up Mad Mike and his group. The islands need tourism now that the U.S. has "closed"
the Soviet monitoring network....er ASA/NSA.......

They have a fair number of listening station "babies" still on the island, now all grown up. Guess guys had a wee bit too much time on their hands.

Goons for hire to merchant ships?

Would they divert to the Seychelles and have the mercenaries board, or would they simply fly them to the surrounding ports of call? I would think the latter, after all they have to pick up the mercenaries after the job is done.

I went to school with Mike Hoare's son, Simon. The sign at the end of their driveway... "The Hoare House"
Us kids thought it was pretty funny.

Mike has been very very quiet since the Seychelles affair. He's about 20 years older than me...so it's a wonder he's still alive.
