Videos from this trip

Where one goes to take his holidays while working on the island, where some of the more courageous people go to spend their vacation? Maybe to another island. So I went in April 2014 to Espiritu Santo, to the Catholic mission in Port Olry. I found there an old friend from my stay on Tanna in 2008, a missionary father Morlini, and made some new friends too.

When the village generator was working and the power was on, I was in the local school of St. Anne putting together their sick computers and projecting the future computer classroom of the school ... and when the generator stopped, I disappeared in a wooden canoe to one of the islets around Port Olry or to the surrounding jungle with a bunch friends, hunting dogs and an old .22 rifle of Czech production, which I found at the house of one elder in the village. I enjoyed walking on the sea-facing side of the village. Small houses and white sand reminded me of a fishing village on the west coast of Madagascar. The best time to do that was in the evening when smoke from cooking fires was hanging in the air over the village, and when the temperature was more bearable than in the daytime. The sun is definitely more scorching there than on Tanna. For two days we camped in the jungle on the eastern shore of Big Bay, hunted pigeons and sea fish and crabs, let the rain drench us head to toes, then dried on the hot tropical sun, rode a horse at full gallop bareback, were drinking kava all the night ... and in the morning back to the school to see the poor sick computers. Perfect vacation ...
