because we could not stay too long in this great country and sail around its islands, we decided to rent a car and see the most of efate. we had an excellent day of very pretty sights and a lovely road trip. the high price was definitely worth it!! we were amazed of the many lot developments, and also of the magnitude and beauty of the real estate. By this we mean the tourists houses of course. all the local villages, except for port vila, live with no electricity and on very primitive homes. quite the contrast between these places and the tourist fancy neighborhoods.
