Posted on September 6, 2019October 29, 2021 Yesterday we went to the market in Alotau. The food looked amazing. These are buai (also known as beetlenut). People chew them with lime (the stone) powder and mustard (the string-bean looking things in this photo) and get a “high” when chewed. It’s kind of the local equivalent of chewing tobacco. It also stains your teeth red. Fresh peanuts and cucumbers.
