Vanuatu day 4 - Erakor Island

STILL CLOUDY. I can’t believe I’ve been here for 4 days and I have barely even seen the sun. I was counting on that it would be sunny today, so I didn’t really know what to do. I took the bus and a ferry to Erakor Island, I had no idea what kind of an island it was but it was close so I thought I’d check it out.
On the way I saw some of the locals’ dwellings. Quite shocking. Little huts made of a few pieces of tin plates and wood and no furniture… One sofa that was actually a bench ripped out of a car. It’s hard to comprehend how poor they are. And still they do seem really happy and content with their lives. Money doesn’t bring happiness…
Erakor Island was pretty, but it was actually some sort of resort so I wasn’t allowed to discover the whole island, just the main beach, Paradise Beach. The water was so clear, you could see to the bottom all the way in the ferry. Nice sand, good place for a swim, corals further away and HEAPS and HEAPS of different colored starfish everywhere and beautiful shells. And the best pina colada I’ve ever had. But still, would have been so much better with the sun out.
I was having a look around the town when some cute little local boys came to talk to me, maybe around 7 years old. They were really sweet and got me some Band-Aid for my sore feet. I went to sleep around 8 pm cause there’s nothing to do here by myself when it gets dark.
