    Love the murals and the wooden sculptures :-) Haha, yes, Haus... I thought it is Maus in your small photo but when I opened the tip, I saw that it is Haus. And sholter means Schulter? And these marvellous flowers again!

    Hi Michael, your huge cruise ship seems to be towering over all the small buildings of Vanuatu. But I?m sure the locals are accustomed to that.

    It's amusing to read about such a hot place in Oceania while being in such a cold place in Eurasia... What a wonderful cruise you have had, Michael!

    Michael, fabulous little page about this hot and humid gem. I could do with a massage with coconut oil right now. *winkygrin*

    I think walking makes good sense since one sits a lot on a cruise ship, sometimes even if it's very hot. Great murals there!

    Hi Michael, nice page about your visit to Port Vila! I am dreaming of visiting Vanuatu one day (maybe as a cruise from Australia), so I was very interested in your page. I loved to see how the local buildings and the murals look like.
    Also good warnings about the souvenirs! When I spent my first christmas in Australia, my grandma sent my a letter with a straw star, and it was sent back to Germany because it was not allowed... They certainly are strict about this, so it is better not to spend money on souvenirs that you then cannot keep!
