These Vanuatu geckos are getting used to me screaming at them now. I spot their shadows as they cautiously approach the threshold to my villa and immediately clap my hands while warning them in a loud voice to get the hell outta my room. They scamper away. Not messing with this crazy woman, they must think. I have yet to see a really BIG gecko, which has gotta tell ya something about how they are treated by others on the island.
Although, as my husband is fond of telling me, they do eat the bugs, but I doubt they make much of a dent in those hard-shelled giant beetles, one of which I found upside down with its tiny little feet in the air begging for a toothpick with a flag.
I've had the last of my real estate closings this week for 2014. That's almost as sad as an upside-down beetle. You can read more and view the rest of my photographs from the town of Tanoliu in my personal blog today at this link: Sacramento Realtor Last Sale for 2014 Still Closed From Vanuatu.
