The people of Lifou Island
My World, again on Lifou Island in the Loyalty Island Group, for the last time.
Random photos of some of the colourful people of Lifou Island. Plus a small old statue I found hiding in the palm trees and a live swimming turtle that was playing near the wharf.
I find the scenery is almost as interesting as the people, on this lovely Island.
The men have white paint on there faces and long head scarves, this is because they had been dancing for the tourists and face paint is part of the costume.
The ladies dress in big bright dresses with flowers in their hair.
