He apologized for the dog attack and offered me two Solomon dollar coins - telling me that it was an old Solomon Island custom to sort of atone for an injury by giving money, and if you believe in the custom, the money will heal your injury. ...

Next door to the art gallery were booths with Solomon handicrafts to which Jack also led me. I was surprised at the prices I saw marked on some woven handbags. $20 US equivalent. I suppose you have to bargain ...
