Vanuatu Port-Villa

Arrived Vanuatu, fly to the Yasur volcano in the morning. Phone troubles so limited communications until we can work that out.

Staying the PP motel (Jan hates it). It was closest to the airport, but run down, no bed net, and on a "scary" street with no restaurants nearby, so we took a "bus" down to the waterfront. A bus is a small van full of strangers with a sticker in the window that you hail from the street. The cost is $1.40 flat rate. I certainly wouldn't do this in a kidnap/terrorist area but it seemed OK here. On the way, Jan asked about buying wine and they stopped at a bottle shop and waited before taking us to a restaurant at the marina. Woke up at midnight to club music that lasted until 4 AM. The port looks nice and we wished we had had more time to explore.

Bislama, a creole Pijin language is the official language here:
