1 June 2011 (-1 in time zone):

Found a ride in a family truck at the airport. They told me that no dogs are allowed on the island, as centuries ago, they were though to carry leprosy, or maybe a dog mauled a high chief's daughter or something. Some people on the island have never see a dog in real life! This is the view from where I was staying - Tom's Beach Cottage.
