26 June 2011:

After a long and delayed boat ride, I arrived at White Sandy on Naviti Island. On-board, the boat/tour company was making arrangements to get people with evening flights to the airport on time, since the boat was very delayed. I also encountered Bill, the head at the Kuata resort on-board, wearing a long necklace with chiefly-looking beads and travelling with a small entourage. Out of nowhere, he asked me to buy them ice-cream. Since I was running low on money, I bought Bill ice cream but not the others, and he took it without a word of thanks. I couldn't tell if this is usual behaviour for chiefs in the area...
