Cool photos Paul,

I finally got around to checking them out.  I'm pretty sure those "Archontophoenix" in post #8 are actually a Pinanga species (not sure which one though).  The inflorescence is very Pinanga like and not very Archontophoenix-ish.

Yeah, and that was at the airport!?!?!?!?! Not in America, that would be a WMD( going for a Weapon of Mass Destruction, MattyB, not something else). Great shots of all the locals, though I felt sorry for the banana pseudostem being chopped up to feed the pigs.

Dear Matty for your statement,i was thinking of

something else !  :D

And wish to know what is the male shaft with

O rings doing in a public place like that ?

It remiands me of the movie 'Caligula_part 1'

No doubt we indian's Adore & worship Lord

shiva_in the Linga Form.i.e (male & female

genitals in congenieal form).No doubt we

indian's have huge population due to it.

But this can be only seen in place of worship.

and not in public place.

Tiwan's(Tiepae) is a lesson for all the tourist Dept.

of the World.Since in india we have Kajaraho(N.India)

which has about 63 styles of sexual postures,practised

by the kings of those times on rock carvings.

but this historic site is not popularised by our goverment

& its people.

Anyway Matty i had a hearty Laugh !  :D

Love,

Kris.

Thank for those fantastic photos. They made me take memory lane trip. We went there in 2000 and fell in love with the island.

How safe did you feel there?

Enjula's photos are very poetic too...
