Vanua-tutu

Here are some great photos of my "monkey man", who decided it would be a great idea to climb a tree on the copra plantation for some "nafele" (a kind of nut).

He thought he was being so clever and cool and decided to show off half-way up the tree...


In the process he gave me a complete heart attack and I was sure that he would fall... (Look how high up he is!!!!!!! AND he went even higher!!!!!!)

Needless to say, he lived to see another day (although I nearly killed him for scaring me half to death) and he promptly sat down with his cousin and his cousin's wife to enjoy his nuts. He's nuts.

Hi. Michele sent me to check out your cool pics. It looks gorgeous and warm there which is a world apart from the snow outside here at the moment! LOL.

I hope those nuts were worth the climb! That was pretty high up!!!

Holy crap, Yaeli. How could you let him climb that far up! He coulda broken all sorts of things on the way down.

Like B-K said, I hope the nuts were worth it!

So the big question is "were they worth it?" I mean I don't want to get off the couch for most nuts let alone climb a tree.

He is amazingly courageous. Kudos to him for having the guts to do what most of us can only imagine - and for having such a great sense of humor about it.

He's clearly a great catch!

I think I'd have done the same thing. I don't often give sufficient consideration to potential danger. I wonder why that is?

Michele sent me,

What great pictures. I'm sure he is well used to climbing coconut trees and was really very safe.
Here from Michele's.

Hi Yaeli, I haven't visited you in ages!!! Glad to see you are still around.

To have the abitly to climb a tree like that just simply boggles me. I could never be so brave or have the co-ordination to do so.

Michele sent me today but I'll be back!! Yippee.

I love the blog that you have. I was wondering if you would link my blog to yours and in return I would do the same for your blog. If you want to, my site name is American Legends and the URL is:

www.americanlegends.blogspot.com

If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.

Thanks,
David
