What a day. We flew to the SE end of the island via helicopter provided by the Australian Army. We flew to the villages of Uato Lari and Illiomar. Both places are pretty remote and neither of them have basic facilities like water and sewer. Water borne illnesses from pathological organisms are prevalent and infant mortality is high. Yet they appear happy and we had a great time playing with the kids. I sure hope that these efforts result in some significant health care improvements.
