... spiaggia del paese, bere il nostro primo coco-loco, una noce di cocco con l’aggiunta di rum, e fare due passi per il villaggio. Ci sono diversi stranieri che si sono stabiliti qui, inclusi un paio di italiani che hanno aperto un ristorante dove abbiamo mangiato una pizza e un piatto di pasta molto buoni.
