Motorcycle Purchased

Getting around on the island of Tablas is hard.  The public transport is infrequent and hard to predict.  A public tricycle goes past about every hour but you might end up waiting up to two hours.

This can be frustrating to say the least...

To ensure that projects run smoothly and volunteers are not stranded for lengthy periods, the Meaningful Volunteer Trust in New Zealand purchased a new Kawasaki Fury 125 motorcycle for 60,400 pesos (about $US1,100). 

A local driver will be used to ferry volunteers from place to place.
