We were given so many coconuts in the beginning, we thought there would be no way to eat them all. Very quickly though, we had formed a habit of eating at least 4 a day, and everytime we ran out, more would show up!
In retaliation we gave away some of our canned food, helped with outboard engine repair, and we made a cake for the mayor. In return, though, we got coconut crab, lobster, and coconut wine! We had lost the battle, and I think that is the way the islanders prefer it.
