Two Sides of Vanuatu

19 Jun

Vanuatu prides itself on its smiling and welcoming people. The soil is so fertile that they have plenty to eat. Tourists come by planes and cruise ships to enjoy the country’s beautiful scenery, turquoise waters and sandy beaches. But the Ni-Vanuatu  often do not realize that their night skies also make the envy of the urbanized world.

Yet, it also has rampant corruption and politicians who do not even attempt to hide it.

Both sides are evident in today’s Daily Post:
