PARADISE

Huc Luquiens 

He pointed out to the bay
and said 'You need to stand on the water and listen to the waves where men are buried. Take the boat trip out to where the harbor is a grave.'
The islands are in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and it was once a paradise, and it
still is now, beaches and mountains and hotels, condominiums and shopping, markets where people from the East and people from the West can get almost anything.

But it is still, here, a grave, and they tell you as the boat ride starts out slow, and stops, and you step out on to the memorial, they tell you it is a grave and to respect the hundreds dead still down there under the water.
