It may be hundreds of miles north of Fiji, separated by open ocean, home to a unique ethnic group and language. But you get to Rotuma like you get most places these days. You get in a plane and fly.
Still, though, when you closest neighbors are, um, Wallis and Futuna … well perhaps this Google Map will give an idea. The red thingie is Rotuma.
The plane only goes once a week. So you’re stuck there for seven days. And the runway? It’s made of grass, and surrounded by coconut palms.
