The young adventurers had to buy a tabua (whale's tooth) in Labasa for a ceremony - and that is costly. They have visited Mali District School in Ligaulevu village and recorded the kids singing. It's interesting for me to hear the adverturers' point of view, their commitment to the project, their 'innocence' even.
