This was Captain Cook in reverse: this time the natives sold us the baubles and beads!

Children in the village school were happy to sing for us.

The village copper and silver smithies gave us a demo, especially how a quick acid bath can “change” cheaper copper into looking like expensive silver.  We happily haggled and bought their goods.

Beautiful people, as always…
