Betel nut seller at the Kokopo market

PA202957

One whole, long shed at the market is dedicated to betel nut and brus tobacco -- and it is always packed to overflowing with vendors. The little clutches of two betel nut plus a small stick of daka which is chewed with the betel nut normally cost 20 toea (10¢). Small time street vendors will visit the market, by a few kina worth of betel nut and daka, then sell it for double the price on the street. PA202957
