And the country Vanuatu, former New Hebrides, a part of Melanesia, has had a kind of English / French ruling before their independence.
This must be unique. This must be the only country where Brits and Frogs could get together in some harmony.
They locals speak English or French depending which islands you are visiting. And all of them speak their own language, Bislama.
There is one word they always manage to fit in, blong.
Again, another small island nation with friendly smiling helpful people (although poor).
We visited some islands. All of them very basic, but still they seems to be happy.
The children always play and are aloud to be noisy. There is always laughter.
This picture is for you! Sara our daughter!! You just loved them. And they are very cute and special.
On the way back to our boat we saw a dugong (sea cow) and a mighty turtle.
Always friendly and proud. Never pushy.
