Oyster Island and Espiritu Santo Island, Vanuatu

We walked for an hour and a half through the jungle towards the Bamboo River. Before you enter Millenium Cave for the first time it is a Melanesian custom to have paint applied to your face to show respect for the spirits of the cave. The symbols represent the birds and bats in the cave as well as the boulders and the zig zag course you must take.   Select the photo below to see the end result.
