          ... We ended up in a poorer area where ordinary folk obviously buy their food and other goods. We were looking for the dance performances we'd heard would happen later in the day. Finally we walked back to the square and then found a tourist information office and found out the performance was to start at 3pm down near the lake where we'd caught the boat in the morning. We took a taxi down, found a spot on a wide thoroughfare that was becoming lined ...

          ... dinner instead and 45 minutes later we were on our way again. Soon after, the woman in front of Margot, nicknamed by now The Cow, reclined her seat almost horizontally into Margot's lap. She refused to raise her seat at all. Then she had the cheek to complain that Margot's knees were digging into her back! From then on it was a battle of wills to see who would give in first but it was a draw.

They live from the reeds and from fishing which they exchange for other produces from the mainland and the nearby islands.
