The nurses I'm living with took me on a tour of the island this morning and to the local grocery store - the IBIS which stands for Islanders Board of Industry and Service. It was very lucky and convenient that we had the use of a car, so was a great way to get my bearings and do a bit of a starter shop. This place is sooo beautiful. Here are some photos from my phone.
My first shopping receipt - $100 doesn't go far. But I did buy about 18 portions of meat, in that BBQ pack, so it's not so bad I guess. And as I'm not paying for rent, electricity, or water, and get a remoteness allowance, it all makes up for it!
