We Survived

We have survived the cyclone, which turned out to not be nearly as hazardous as we thought it might be, especially for the island of Efate, where I am currently staying. However, the Southern island of Tanna was affected, so my friends who live there are concerned about their houses. Vanuatu has more natural disasters than any other country in the world. These include cyclones, tsunamis, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions. However, it is also the world's happiest nation.


  1. Lovely pictures, and we're grateful the forces of nature have been kept at bay (literally!). We got your letter, and love hearing from you.

  2. Wow! Go figure. What does it say about life that the people who are in the most danger are the ones who are happiest? Maybe our priorities are a bit mixed up, and the people of Vanuatu can teach us a lot...
