Feasts and Games in Ailuk

We were well looked after in Ailuk with the various feasts and picnics.  Liz described them in her blog posts at the time and some pictures are below:

Like in Fiji, volleyball is popular here and these ladies are good.

Very tasty. No parts were wasted.

Lots of time to sit and chat.  In this case at Anious's house in Ailuk village.
