Day 22 Luganville, Vanuatu

Last evening we spent a great time dining in the Pinnacle Dining room. The food was so good. I ordered a rib eye steak on the bone, and Roak ordered the lobster tail. Both meals were delicious. It was a formal night so we looked pretty good too.

Today we arrived in Luganville (also known as Espiritu Santo).

We took a tour called the Magical Gaua Water Music Experience. We travelled to a small village where native performers welcomed us; we drank kava (made from a pepper-like root); and, we given a tour of the plantation where they live. The kava numbs your lips; tongue & teeth for several hours. The performers presented traditional dances and the water rituals that the women use to attract fish and dolphins to the shore to be caught. It truly was a 'magical' experience and one not to be missed. The drive a bit harrowing but well worth it.
