Title: You can get anywhere if not in a hurry

Sorry, but we are waiting for a good weather window to Australia, not get anywhere... Aiming for Coffs harbor-but we will see what the weather helps us to accomplish
While we wait we have school with the kids, exercise and clean out the boat (to save time in Australia).
Saturday we had a day off and went to the culture center Tjibaou outside Noumea, that is a wonderful place and this weekend they had a fair for tourism in Noumea.
We took the local bus and went there in the morning...

The center itself has some astonishing architecture (the French beat most in architecture).
The forms are meant to remind of the traditional Kanaka huts

The idea to show them like skeletons, is that they are not ready, to symbolize that the Kanakan culture is not status quo

Behind those new symbolic huts you find the real ones

They had some dance performance from different islands in the Pacific
The audience is just as fun to watch- the third guy from left is responsible for the group dancing at that moment
But watch these guys...
