Nguna Island - Arrival
As with all of the small islands that surround Efate, the only means of access is by small boat. Having gained the permission of the young boys perched on the bows, I took this photo of our small contingent during the crossing. Wearing life jackets are Lyn and Hezbourne, fellow volunteers. Not wearing a lifejacket is our Bislama teacher and interpreter, Joy. The boys did their best not to giggle at the nervousness expressed by the newcomers when the wind picked up and we felt the first small ocean swell.
