    Butcher Day

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Once a month (on a Monday), the locals wait for the day the butchers come to acquire their meat.

    There are overnight workers who try to ensure their "catch of the day" in the fields reaches the butcher shops first for purchase.

    Wherever you go, the smiles will follow

    One of the most cherished things I took back with me from my visit to Tanna Island, was the warm welcoming by the locals.

    As we drove through the unpaved roads, every chance they had, the locals would run up to the car with their waves and glistening smiles to shout out, "Bon Jour!" and "Hello!"

    It's common courtesy on the island to wave at passers-by, whether in car or on foot.

    This is a custom I wish all the places in the world would exercise.

    Just a simple wave of the hand and a crack of a smile could make a world of difference during that long commute during rush hour!
