    We had a wonderful stay at Tanna and we did not want to leave without a ride to Yakel; I said that we were not in an organized, but accompanied by a local Tower. Came to the village, we are greeted by the one who plays the "healer" in the film. Visit to the garden, he proposed we climb into the House in the trees 'special tourists'. When we return to the entrance of the village which was empty when we arrived, everyone is here (arriving we surprise 2 youth trying to swap the "street clothes" against the uridom) in traditional costume, mats are spread with a little craft. We do some shopping and asked us 1500 vatus each visit (in fact we went through the garden time the tribe prepares) + 500 vatus each to be mounted in the cabin in the trees... A little hard to swallow. . For this price, the "healer" of the film offers that the tribe dance (the dance is done to a certain period and is not at the moment). It doesn't make any sense and is denied. Brief, terribly disappointing and a little sad... Some backpackers said we have had a good time with the tribe arriving backpack and walk. May arrive by car, made you catalogue "money pump"? Business is business
