    A new one for me.

    Uvea is the Polynesian name for Wallis Island, situated 340km east of Samoa and 3,000km north west of Tahiti.

    The centre of Wallis Island is semi-desert with pandanus trees. There are no venomous creatures. The island is encircled by a lagoon some 50 kilometres by 95 square kilometres and seafood and fish are plentiful.

    Made the hook up with Phillip on the other island yesterday - S9 report from him. He has been working many stations from the US now.
