📑️🤓️ The vital importance of Local Knowledge

There's a yacht that arrived a couple of days ago, and is now moored in Port Vila harbour. They just got fined around USD5,000. (!) It's a classic story of what can go wrong when you don't have local knowledge. None of the 3 people on the yacht actually tested positive for COVID-1984, and it...

🌏️ Connecting to the world… times 4

News this week that a second undersea communications cable will shortly be laid, this time between Vanuatu and Honiara, Solomon Islands. So we will have backup for undersea cabling, as the original one connects us to Suva, Fiji where it joins the trans-Pacific cable. So right now we have...

☔️ Rain is softly falling…

Rain is softly falling as I write. Of course, almost everywhere in the tropics there are basically 2 seasons, "the Wet" and "the Dry." It seems that we are entering "the Wet" now, which is not surprising. "The Wet" will be properly underway next month. Personally I enjoy the rain for...

2021.11.02 ⏰️ Buying time for fun and profit

Ths morning I was reviewing some of Gary Halbert's newsletters, and came across this.. "All truly wise people realize time is the most precious commodity they possess. And, it is this commodity they are least likely to squander. Do you realize many people who pay to have me write copy for...

🐈️🐕️ Bringing pets to Vanuatu

I recently flagged that I'd tell you about bringing pets into Vanuatu. We have first hand experience with this, as we brought our 2 "Rag Doll" cats with us in 2016. We chose to use a specialist animal logistics company in Australia. A bit if research and getting quotations showed a lot...

🌳️ of air roots and Pandanus

In Vanuatu you see a lot of different kinds of Pandanus tree.  The Pandanus can be a very attractive "sculptural" looking tree, besides providing food (breadfruit) leaves to make baskets and mats, and a valuable lesson for us.  They resist salty winds, they fare well in cyclones, and...
