Photo update No 3 - Kustom Dance in Aneityum

The villagers put one a 'cultural event' for us in Aneityum and it was great - they seemed to enjoy it as much as we did. Here are some photos from the day.

The dancing is mostly in an inward-looking circle with firm foot stamping and loud singing

..... and leaf-waving


Di tries the kava, which is a lot stronger than the Fijian stuff
