Title: Waha

Waha came to visit Tarita in Hunga.He has been living there all his life
and many generations before him of his family.He goes out in the ocean to
fish at 04.00 every morning,and takes care of his fruit plantation in the
afternoon.He came to us with fruits(papaya,limes,bananas,and a fruit we
never saw before).When we tried to pay him I got the impression he was
allmost offended."I don't bring this fruit to sell but as a gift",an
attitude we have met many times in Polynesia,quite different from our
"western attitude"
