Wonderful visits to very remote villages, and a fantastic feast was prepared for us by our great friend Nina.
Today was more land diving, followed by the devouring of an entire calf by the village! And of course our family. The eating is done on a leaf that you grab from the forest with your fingers. Then there is the kava. Kava is a slightly narcotic drink that if drunk in very high quantities can really mellow a person out. Hence it is drunk in very large quantities, and in my opinion is one of the very few problems that they have here. It plays to much of a role in the young men's lives.
We are going to slow down a little bit now, and only do little 10 mile hops, to some of our favorite anchorages!
