Luganville market

Markets are wonderful places for people-watching. George is busy haggling and choosing food, and I follow her around carrying bags and being a sort of 'beast of burden'.

If the mission is not too onerous, I take a camera and ask people if I can take their photo. Almost always, they agree.

The stalls are mostly run by women, mothers and grannies. Often they are also supervising a baby or toddler. Some of them are pretty cute.

The people in Santo are Melanesians, a bit different to the people in Fiji and Tonga, who are more Polynesian. 

Some of the styles and music suggest a black US or Caribbean influence. This is a taxi-driver.
