The orange on these leaves is part of the green leaf. It's not two separate leaves. Very unusual and very pretty.
This guy had a shed full of these "Fiji brooms" that are made from the spines of palm fronds cut out and tied together. $3 Fijian (about $1.50 US) would get you one.This little kid caught this crab in the sand and then proceeded to 'play' with it and bang on it with a stick until it was pretty much dead and couldn't pinch him.

The beach on Naviti. We had the place to ourselves and then Sirius joined us.
The village lady making Fiji brooms out of the coconut frond spines. What a way to spend your days, eh?
The biggest barracuda we've ever seen in this dinghy. Veladare caught it and gave us a huge chunk and took the rest to a local resort for the guests to eat.
Karen and her mango basket made by Semi on Naviti. It's full of mangoes and I had to cut the spine at the top to get it open back at the boat. Very clever.The only woman Chief in Vanuatu. She lives on Naviti and is 87 yrs. old and still functioning quite well. This is in her home when we took kava to do sevu sevu with her.
