Mbaison is the village on the other side of the island from Marulaon. It is a lovely walk across the island and not too far at all. We went to visit Joanna’s friend Olivia, and it gave me a chance to see a little more of the surrounding area.
Olivia is a great lady who speaks beautiful English and is very proud of her accomplished children. She has a sense of humor and laughs easily. Joanna brought some food from her garden to share and Olivia sent us back with breadfruit and papaya. We spent the late morning and early afternoon storying and just enjoying the people and beautiful surroundings.
