My time as a Peace Corps Volunteer was spent on a very tiny, very remote island in the South Pacific, in Tonga. The island, Ha'afeva, is about a mile and a half long, and one mile wide. Because it's so small and so remote, most of the food on the island comes from the sea or the bush. Fruitbats, as you see here, are a favorite among the kids. They throw rocks up into the trees to knock the bats down, then they carry them home for dinner. The kids would always stop by my house on their way home, because they knew the bats freaked me out. These two were my neighbors Kali and 'Enisolo. When I was taking their picture, the boy, Kali, was talking and he was moving his hands around and the bat's body kept flapping around, hitting the girl, 'Enisolo, in the head.
