We're off on a colourful journey around the world.

0:00:430:00:46

I wonder who we're going to meet today?

0:00:460:00:49

This is a beautiful island called Yap in the Pacific Ocean.

0:00:520:00:56

And this is a village where a five-year-old girl,

0:00:560:01:00

her older sister and auntie live.

0:01:000:01:03

Let's meet them.

0:01:050:01:07

Yes, please!

0:01:070:01:08

-ALL:

-Hello!

0:01:100:01:12

Hello!

0:01:120:01:14

SHE SPEAKS IN HER OWN LANGUAGE

0:01:140:01:16

She says her name is Putin.

0:01:160:01:19

And here is her big sister and her Auntie Christina.

0:01:210:01:24

They're off on their way to dig some vegetables,

0:01:270:01:30

and it's quite a long way.

0:01:300:01:32

Through the bushes and trees they walk

0:01:370:01:40

to the place where vegetables called yams grow.

0:01:400:01:44

Yams?!

0:01:440:01:46

Yes. Yams grow in the ground, like...

0:01:460:01:50

like potatoes or carrots.

0:01:500:01:52

There.

0:01:560:01:58

Auntie Christina is digging for the yams in the ground.

0:02:010:02:05

It's hard work to dig up the deep roots of the yam.

0:02:050:02:08

Come on, Auntie Christina, you can do it!

0:02:160:02:18

Putin's helping now.

0:02:240:02:26

Oh! There's the yam!

0:02:290:02:30

Yes.

0:02:300:02:32

Putin puts the yams carefully into her basket.

0:02:370:02:42

There! Finished.

0:02:500:02:52

They've collected enough yams.

0:02:520:02:55

They walk through the bushes and trees

0:02:590:03:02

back to their home to cook the yams.

0:03:020:03:05

Nearly there, Putin.

0:03:090:03:11

But before they cook the yams

0:03:180:03:20

they have to be cleaned and scrubbed with some water

0:03:200:03:24

to get rid of the dirt and the soil.

0:03:240:03:27

Scrub, scrub, scrub!

0:03:270:03:29

They are very dirty yams.

0:03:310:03:33

Next, the yams are peeled.

0:03:390:03:42

Auntie Christina lights the fire to cook the yams

0:03:540:03:57

whilst Putin and her sister watch.

0:03:570:04:00

There!

0:04:090:04:11

The yams are in the pot.

0:04:110:04:13

THEY SING

0:04:130:04:15

Aw! What a lovely song.

0:04:150:04:18

-Bye-bye!

-Bye!

0:04:240:04:26

It was lovely to meet you.
