Gizo, Western Province, Solomons

Most people spend all day here doing nothing but sitting in the shade and swatting flies off the betel nuts they are selling. Many don't have anything to sell and just sit in the shade. The locals that I talked to about their predicament seemed pretty aware that their life was being spent this way. I openly confessed to many that it seemed like a terrible fate. Some agreed, some laughed... I left in a hurry.
