Youngster shinnies up a coconut palm for a cool drink

P3037903

A young lad shinnies up a coconut palm for a "kulau" a young coconut which yields a cool and stimulating drink regardless of the heat of the day. He has tied a thong of fibre (from the coconut palm) around his feet to help him keep a grip on the trunk. Visit a village with Kokopo Tours and some youngster is sure to volunteer to climb a coconut to give you a cooling kulau drink -- and a picture opportunity. P3037903
