We have just come back from a week in lovely, sunny, warm, FRIENDLY Vanuatu where we did all the usual things when holidaying in a tropical isle with the biggest impression we came away with from Vanuatu was the genuine warm friendliness of the Melanisian people. This contrasted with the conditions that the majority of these people live in, although clean and tidy the villages were of a very poor standard compared to Kiwi so called underclass living conditions.
The highlight of a wonderful week was the day trip around the island of Efate with the HIGHLIGHT of this day and the whole holiday our visit to the "Kastom Village" of Epule where Henry,the spokeperson as he was the only one who could speak english and the Chief and his tribe of about 30 gave us a wonderful insight into authentic Melansian living and culture which included a lunch cooked in the traditional way which even makes my mouth water now as I write this. Anyone contemplating going to Vanuatu this experience is thoroughly recommended.
