Return to Yadua - In Pictures

We had not heard how Yadua had faired during Cyclone Winston and we were looking forward to visiting the village there again so after a while Exodus and Fluenta did slow overnight passages to Yadua.  Liz wrote about it here and a few pictures are posted below:

Going carefully to the village.

Post sevusevu kava sesson

Look at the picture on the wall behind my right shoulder. (you can see the picture here).  Mele is the village spokesman or Taurgna ni koro.  This caused some chatter during the kava session.

Brendan is a great sport playing with the village kids.

Ball catching is a pretty universal language.
