    FYI for Luis and Dawn Wells: Dawn mentioned going to Sulufoa island, an artificial (man-made) island in the Solomons. You both might be interested in my short story, "American Model," set in Honiara and Sulufoa. I've added a drawing of the island on the web version of there story. See the link on the homepage of my website, http://www.terrymarshallfiction.com. (My wife and I lived for three years on Guadalcanal in the Solomons where we directed Peace Corps programs for the Solomons, Kiribati, and Tuvalu.
