The wind, of course, is in the wrong
direction for leaving, so we went on a motorbike tour. The guide
no front brake, but our bike had a gear set up Murray had never
in 37 years of motorcycling. Obviously helmets and insurance are
unheard of. The bike was a road bike, which was OK as we were
on the 'roads' – this is not an 'off road' picture.
Maps.me showed a Voodoo temple so we
asked our guide if he could take us there.
At first he was adamant
that the map was wrong and took us to two other temples. But
asked directions from man carrying a trussed but strangely
cockerel on his shoulder and we made our way to the marked
was bigger and had several large flags flying, yet our guide who
grown up here didn't know of it?
The day was great for people
watching; life is very similar here to the Tongans. Fields are
ploughed by oxen, transport was motorbike or donkey with sort of
basket seats (most strange). All the females had hard work, i.e.
carrying water; with washing hung out on cactus hedges.
Due to the photo difficulties, these
