3 islands in a week
Second and last week in Vanuatu…
Saturday, November 6
To reach the village of Farea Fao, the site of a rural electrification project, we climbed the sides of Nguna Island. Seasoned adventurers that we are, we hadn’t of course brought any water… A coconut picked up on the way and opened with a villager’s machete quenched our thirst.

A day at the hotel to work on the blog. Rather than showing you our rooms, we wanted to show you the (non-)airport of Malikolo. Arson reduced it to a few sections of wall during territorial conflict in 2001.

Returning from Port Olry, a village that is self-sufficient in electricity thanks to its small copra oil electricity power plant, we make a detour via Champagne Beach.

Impromptu photo of Frederic, our GDF SUEZ guide in Vanuatu, in front of the superb fresco on the front of the Unelco building in Port Vila. A big thank you to him and all the teams of Unelco and AEV for their welcome!
