Rich cultural traditions are still evident in village life. In Porta Vila, the capital, there is a thriving food market where tourists can eat local dishes such as Lap-lap, a traditional cake make from root vegetables.

New Zealand

New Zealand | Our Global Neighbours | Scoop.it
Kia Ora! New Zealand is in the south-eastern Pacific ocean and consists of two larger mountainous islands, North Island and South Island, and various smaller islands.  The islands have much unusual wildlife not found anywhere else in the world, including flightless birds such as the endangered kiwi. The islands were first inhabited by the Maori people, who came from Polynesia around 1000 AD. The Dutch discovered the islands in the 1600s and named them New Zealand but they didn't settle; Captain James Cook brought the British to the islands in 1769. Fun fact: More people live in the city of Auckland on North Island than in the whole of the South Island!
