Look out, ladies with betel nut coming through!
In reply to Hen3ry, 6 months ago

On the beach at Kavieng, New Ireland, on Saturday morning -- market day -- a "banana boat", an outboard powered 26 foot fibreglass (or whatever) job, has just come in with a load of market goods including freshly harvested betel nut.

Buyers rushed the betel nut to stock their street stalls where they sell betel nut, cigarettes, village cured tobacco, and "flex" -- cheap mobile phone prepaid cards. There are lots of variations on what stalls stock, but these are the basics.

But whatever else, the stall must have betel nut to attract customers so for stall holders, getting their supply for the day is essential.

These two ladies didn't wait for the betel nut to come ashore, they waded thigh deep to buy it right off the boat.

The G6 with the 12-35 fitted.

Cheers, geoff
