a lape welcome

Path through the village
On Lape Island, the seven families living on the island make a village. In this village, they welcome visitors and twice a month they also offer a Tongan feast for guests to Tonga. This include a tour of their village. Kolio was our host and he was happy to share his world and traditions with a fairly large group of us. It felt a little strange to walk around viewing village life, even a little voyeuristic, but the experience was interesting. The feast was delicious: there was a roasted pig and many fish dishes. I didn’t take pictures of the spread but here are a few from around Lape Island.

Pretty colours
