Today turned out pretty well. We arrived into Port Vila around 0700 and the weather was much better than yesterday’s rain. I went into town around 0800 and toured the town, did some shopping and enjoyed the people of Vanuatu. They are extremely nice and really make everyone feel welcome. The city itself is bigger than Luganville where we visited yesterday. It is also a bit more modern which can probably be attributed to the fact that Port Vila is the capital of Vanuatu. Around 1130, I took a ferry over to the island of Iririki. There is a lovely resort there with beaches, pools, snorkeling…. The works! While I was touring the island I noticed a fair amount of blood on my tank top and tried to figured out where it came from. The answer came fairly quickly…. My hematoma broke open! Is does provide a little relief. I just hope it will heal sooner versus later. A little note about the blog…. I started blogging over 3 years ago to provide a journal of sorts and photographs for friends and family around the world. It has taken a lot of time, effort and money but it has been worth it. I have friends around the globe that check out the blog on a daily basis and appreciate my efforts to provide a window into my world travels. I have had (and currently have) school kids who follow the blog to get some insight into the world around them. I have always tried to be careful to assure that inappropriate comments and unwanted advertising be eradicated from the blog as soon as I can get to it. I have always had the ability to control who is allowed to post comments but elected not to put those controls in place because it would present a challenge to some of my more technically challenged friends. But alas, things change…. There are people who embrace diversity, tend to create things and look toward the good in people. There are also people who, for whatever reason, try to destroy things and diminish other people. As a result of recent events of trying to introduce hateful things into the blog I am going to take a first step of reviewing each comment before it is allowed to be posted. There is no room in my blog for intolerance. There will no longer be any anonymous postings publishing inappropriate things. I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause for my friends…..
