Islanders



Top pictures is the son, bottom is the mom. At 61 years old, he's a retired scuba-diver-fisherman. Mom stays on the island during the day and then returns to the mainland at night. It's their island because they've been there the longest -- no formal papers, no money exchange. Today, they let tourists come, drink, and rest in hammocks for about $5 USD a day.
