From Fiji to Guam

Hartmut gave a very interesting talk on his 2012 cruise through Polynesia, Melanesia ending in Micronesia. Billed as an Adventure Cruise, he had some doubts as to the accuracy of this title due to the luxury of the ship compared with the simple life of the indigenous people on the small islands and atolls they visited. They live on produce they grow on their little bit of land, with fish as their staple diet.
The people they met were smiling all the time and seemed content with their simple life without radio, television or telephones. No wonder they have lots of children!
He also showed a video made by a Dutch passenger, commented in authentic Dutch - German (sounded just like Rudi Carrell).
We all enjoyed drinks and nibbles and good conversation afterwards.
