They're in Rodrigues

I spoke to Brendan, my dad, and my sister this morning. They arrived safely in Rodrigues. Brendan was very happy to see my dad. They have always had a special bond. After arriving, he helped take my dad's dog, Dot Com, for a walk. He also herded some goats and fed the chickens. I won't be surprised if Brendan tells us that he wants to stay with my dad longer than three weeks, or suggests that we move there.

My sister told me that while they were traveling, Brendan had only slept for three hours. She pointed out that during that time, I had slept for two nights. After speaking with me, he was going to take a shower and go to bed. My sister sent a text message a couple of hours later and let me know that he was sleeping soundly.

  4. I have to ask...are you from Rodrigues and if not, what compelled your father to locate there? It is an exotic choice for retirement! I had to look it up on the World Atlas and even then it was hard to find! Very cool experience.

  5. No, I am not from Rodrigues. My dad was born and raised in Mauritius. He moved back there a couple of years after my mom died. While in Mauritius, he visited Rodrigues and decided to move there...
