Meri Buka

It took me a week of travel and two days of the Mona festival festivities to find an attractive young lady in Buka whom didn't have a mouthful of betelnut. Betelnut is dirt cheap in Bougainville and the nuts are huge, so they're consumed like lollies by young and old. The entire nation bombed day-in day-out.

Except for this bumble-bee lady and her friend whom I spoke to for a while and they were enjoying the performances of the festival.
