Arrival at Ranon

Our arrival at Ranon was fairly low key. A few people greeted us warmly but most thought of us as just a couple more tourists. We loaded our bags from the cargo boat to a small boat and walked up to our accommodation. A swarm of men, boys and girls grabbed our 15 items of luggage and carried them up a steep hill to our bungalow. We were thankful for the help as a few items would have easily weighed 20kg.
We have settled in well at Ranon. We are very happy with our accommodation and surrounds.

Fruit is growing every where including a massive mango tree right beside our bungalow. PawPaw and sour sop is also in abundance. We have a view through the trees across the Sea. We are about 1km from the main village so we have some respite from the roosters and barking dogs which are the bain of village life. We are being looked after by Elsie and three children named Lan, Andrea and Walter.

Our Bislama is improving all the time and we are learning plenty of bush survival skills. The people here live simply, but seem to have all that they need. A tennis ball given as a present is soon discarded for local inventions like a toy windmill made from palm leaves.
Below is a picture of our kitchen and office.
