Young boys - Vureas, Vanua Lava
Some colleagues of mine were presenting a workshop in the village of Vureas, on the west side of Vanua Lava. On the last day, I hopped on the boat that was heading out to pick them up. When I met the chief after the closing ceremony, I asked him if I could take photographs. He looked alarmed and made it clear that I should not. Lucky for me, then, that I had already taken about ten while I sat in another part of the village, waiting for the workshop to finish.
These two brothers initially turned and ran away the moment I appeared on the trail coming into the village. After about fifteen minutes of peeking and running away, their curiousity finally overcame them.
