We cruised down a dirt road on the island of Taveuni, heading to our launch site for the boat ride to remote Matangi island.  We arrived at the launch, which was an unimpressive muddy brown beach.  I noticed a few people walking on the mainly deserted strip of sand and mud, and then a young boy emerged from his yard with a curious eye.  I exited the van and walked to him with my hand outstretched.  “Hi, can take your picture?”.  No faster could I whip out my camera had he struck a pose.  As I considered whether he had ever see a camera, he had proved to me just how naive my consideration had been.
