We finished off the week with a traditional pig roast with lots of fun and laughs. I fully believe that if you’re going to choose to eat meat, you need to know the whole process, so I volunteered to arrive at the roast while the pig was still alive. That was definitely a self-dare because I wasn’t sure if I’d be a vegetarian coming out of it, but was happy to see that it went peacefully, and the roast masters made use of all of it. They even insisted on a prayer before eating, not to thank a god, but to thank the pig.
Next up is about 9 full days at sea, heading back to Fiji, with a quick stop in Nauru, the lease visited country in the world. In Fiji is where I’ll leave the boat and will fly to the remainder of Oceania (Samoa, Tonga, the Solomon Islands, and Vanuatu).
