Thanksgiving day in Santo!

Took a boat to Aore Island just out our window.   It is about a 20 minute ride.   The Kearns and Barbara, our landlady went.    Beautiful!   Great day

This island has a interesting history.   It use to be a leper colony but when the French came here it is rumored that they poisoned all the lepers.   It is mainly inhabited by Australians and New Zealanders...with their holiday houses and small resorts like the one we went to.   Ni vans tend not to live there.

Here is a picture of our apartment from the water coming back across in the boat.    It is the 3rd house 
up from the water.   We live downstairs on one side and Elder and Sis Kearns live on the other side
Down stairs.   Our landlord has the whole top floor.....

  1. I did not know that Aora was a leper colony and that it is mainly inhabited by Australians and New Zealanders.
