PHOTO DESCRIPTION
Kava root makes you feel numb, it's a mild organic psychotrope, you can buy for half dollar a coco shell. The kava bar is the meeting place after 5PM, usually a schack in a quiet place.

Drinking kava is a whole way of life for who belongs to the country. In Indochina, the french colonials used to take a puff on opium from time to time, kava is Vanuatu's opium, much milder though...

top shot is top...the bottom one not that much.
There's an icon missing

Well, the top shot definately tells the story for me, but the bottom...not so much. Maybe it's the blurred vison of the colonial; I think not though...it just doesn't fit the structure of the rest of the series for me. The structure is there, I like the top better.

 I like the trop here a lot, one of the more intelligent and witty diptych we've had here in a long time... Hugh really writes very well it's kind of tough following him ;o)

Clever.  The idea that the expat is drinking his kava and, what?  Seeing a blurred world of "natives" in his intoxicated haze.  Maybe my least favorite of this awesome project.  But I still like it.
