Anuta: a Garden

In order to support the relatively large population of Anuta, the island is covered almost entirely by gardens.  Mostly manioc, there is also pineapple, taro, cabbage, potato, banana, and tobacco growing about.  Not to mention coconuts!
The chief has wisely forbidden copra production.

Manioc growing behind Rafael.

Our homies Rafael, Andrew, and Arro.  You grow up fast on Anuta, and by the time you're our age, you are full fledged members of the community with families and "responsibilities".  We are effectively 13 yr old boys running free, so naturally our best friends on Anuta were these young dudes!
