Motu - the local oven.

The motu is the Solomon Islanders main method of cooking fish,
potato, cassava etc.  Stones are heated on the fire and then placed in a circle
with the potatoes or fish/meat wrapped in banana leaves placed on top. 
These are covered with more hot stones and then banana leaves to keep the
heat in and provide some moisture.

It's a full day's work for a mum to feed her family here!
