ThatchCloseup.jpg (97412 bytes) EfateWW2Hut.jpg (102693 bytes) In Vanuatu, we toured Efate Island with Tatanka and Sea Witch, who joined us in finding the ni-Vanuatu people extraordinarily photogenic.  The thatched fishing hut and memorabilia market (consisting almost entirely of old Coca-Cola bottles) are in Havana Harbour, where the entire American Pacific fleet sheltered at one point during WWII.
