Delivering Supplies and Sites along the way. Sept Vanua Levu

As we have been driving back and forth delivering supplies we
noticed that we kept driving past 4 broken down vehicles, day
after day. This truck barely pulled over, a crane that was still in
the lane of travel, a bus that looked like it just had a flat and a
transport. The driver was with each vehicle and perhaps work
was being done to get it moving again. By the end of second
week, all had been driven away! 
S Howard drumming with the kids at Seaqaqa School, using a
utility box as a drum.
Still drumming as men unload supplies from the truck.
Unloading supplies to build a base for the water tank.

More supplies getting unloaded.

Besides broken down vehicles, this is a common site in our
travels. A worker with a load of dalo on his horse. Notice
his caneknife, their most common tool. We see men, women
and kids as young as about 4 carrying their knife everywhere!
These guys were walking along carrying huge pots! on their
heads. We have also seen a guy carrying a washing machine
on his shoulder. And they walk every where!!
I took this picture at Teresea's home of her purifying the water.
When I did a R.S Enrichment and showed them how to make
banana muffins, on the bottom of the recipe I did a diagram of
a bottle of water with rays of sunshine purifying the water. I
now know that Teresea went home and started doing their
water for drinking this way. They live on top of the hill and
their only source of water is rainfall, off the roof, into a barrel.
This man in Savusavu Bay was moving his boat. We see this alot,
when it's low tide. Once saw a man up to his neck in water, moving
his boat!

Last but not least is part of my shell collection. I'm getting lots of
beautiful shells. The sticks in the middle are actually cannibal
forks! But we aren't planning on eating anyone!
