    As one former forums member observed a few years ago:

    "Believe me. You have not seen questionable hygiene until you have seen some of the smaller nakamals in Port Vila."

    Head coverings sound a bit excessive. Especially considering the fact that there clearly are waaaay more pressing issues to address.

    How are the servers supposed to pick their nose with plastic gloves on?

    "The by-law further prevents the person who sells kava from smoking and spitting close to where kava is sold."

    The first thing I thought before reading the article was; if they ban spitting, it will hardly feel like a real nakamal anymore... But I see a specific wording in this line from the article which says only the seller can't spit. Nice compromise,...they knew. :smuggrin:

    A few places have designated spit troughs like long urinals. They dont work so well though, as if a truck load of guys stops in on their way home from work for a shell and you get them all lined up at the same time, everyone gets covered in each others spit.
    Heres one from last year, with some cool lighting..[​IMG]

    Can you imagine any other place on earth that would proudly and decoratively illuminate a 'spit trough'? ::awesomesmiles:: :love:

    That's solar/battery powered LED lighting. Who says Vanuatu isn't developing? Lighting the spit trough is important to ensure good hygiene. If it were dark somebody might spit on the ground.
