Yeah.... Load of split palm fronds for thatch. Transported from another island about 10km away as it has the best material for the job according to the "old boys" But you need to cut and split them during the right phase of the moon or your roof will always leak. Lots and lots of rain here.... while the maximum elevation in the area is about 150 meters, most of the larger islands are quite hilly.

Here is a shot of the main drag in the "big-city".... Seat of local government and home to about 1/3 of the areas population. One island west from the original photo.

You can find these guys hanging around as well..

Where was I ???
