Main passage into Fulunga and first village visit
Tue 4 Sep 2018 23:58
Although the main passage is 55 metres wide the reefs on each side still looked unforgiving. Young lads are off for a day of farming on a nearby island under the guidance of Tai who had just introduced us to Bill. Bill took us for our sevusevu and he is wearing his sulu ready to take us into the acting chief’s home.
Peter and Martina from Havachat were with us. Ladies inside the shown hut are working on the most skilled art of weaving pandanus mats, every house has at least one. Outside freshly cut leaves were being laid out to dry. Mere, our host, is standing outside her home with its own frangipani tree providing natural perfume all around. Bill showed us the vegetable garden, naming the plants he knew, including cassava and wasabi.
