 At the stream below the mission home it was wash day. The mother was busy scrubbing with her "brooking board" while the kids bathed.

 We buy our ground nuts (peanuts) from the lady in the orange blouse (Isatu - pronounced I-saw-too) at a stand near the mission home. She roasts the nuts in a large metal bowl over a charcoal fire. They are very good.

The two on the left were grinding casava leaf. Usually it is chopped by hand. The casava leaf is cooked with spices and served over rice. Everyone seems to love it. We have eaten roasted casava root. It is good.

  1. It sounds like you have not yet tried Casava leaf. Is that accurate? I would like to know your reaction if you have tried it.
