Easter afternoon was wonderfully busy! SITAG's director and his wife came out for a visit on Bikoi. We were so excited to share Easter with them and to have them meet all of our wonderful neighbors. What a sweet time together! They received a royal welcome, complete with frangipanni necklaces, a welcome song, and green coconuts nested in beautiful red flowers.
Our chicken had been living on our porch under a box since we caught it Saturday night. Aaron and Benjamin took charge of preparing the chicken while I settled our company and showed them the quirks of our house. Chief Leonard even helped swing the chicken around by a rope to dull it's senses. By the time I got down to take pictures, my mighty men had already killed and de-feathered the chicken!
They were on the shore taking lessons from a friend,Isabella. Our Easter chicken was tough, but yummy. Chicken isn't usually eaten here, so it was quite a treat for us to have some fresh "home-grown" chicken for supper and to be able to share it with friends.
