A few photos of the Ambrym Festival

For some reason we have woken up to find some (still very slow) internet signal on our phone this morning so are taking the opportunity to post some photos of Friday's dance in Fanla village:

One of the chiefs playing the traditional bamboo flute

A household watches all the strange white-skinned folk!

The Rom dance - slightly scary costumes

Don't mess with us!
Today's big excitement is the arrival (possibly) of a coastal vessel bringing 150 cows from Espirito Santo to the island so we'll be there to watch the unloading on the beach!

  1. How fantastic. Is that the festival where the young men Bungy jump as a rite of passage?
