A typical town square. Very serene with all the locals hanging around the shade. Stopped by as our Cruise ship made a stop in Noumea. There were some restaurants around

We uses this as a meeting place on our trip. It is a lovely place to sit down and have your lunch and get some shade under the palm trees.
