Vanuatu Islands Sign

We have to learn the language "Pidgin" so we can communicate with the locals on our coming sail. It's the universal language of the islands of Vanuatu, The Solomons, and Papua New Guinea.

This sign gives you an idea. Also, includes French for the left over colonials.

We are off sailing for a month or so. We fly to Vanuatu and sail with friends from there through the primitive, rarely visited islands of Northern Vanuatu and the Solomons. When we sailed across the South Pacific we visited the southern islands of Vanuatu, so this will be new water and people.

Above is an anchorage discovered by Captain Cook on the island of Tanna in Southern Vanuatu . That's our home, Cuchara, at anchor.
