I love Vanuatu because the majority of Ni-Vans still live in the traditional way. This lady is making lap lap which is a basic island dish made from taro and wrapped in coconut leaves for cooking. Very nutritious I believe but quite bland. These pics were taken on Anetyium Island one of the southern islands in the group of 83.
Born in NZ, a child of the 50's, I withstood freezing temperatures until the age of 29 when I embarked on a journey northward to Sydney, Australia. 20 temperate years later the need became apparent to move further north to a hotter and more tropical climate. So Brisbane is now my home.....an exotic south sea island is beckoning though.
