Greetings Berend. Thanks for even stopping to lolok at this photo, and thanks for your comment. I stayed in a guest house right next door (from which this photo was taken), and though there was not an opportunity to visit this prison I knew of some inmates. In our peacebuilding work we have had to consider and support some of the combatants from the civil war who have served prison sentences, and on their release are further isolated from society. For most of them reconciliation is very difficult indeed.
I was returning to Honiara from Auki, Malaita via Tulagi. From the upper deck of the inter-island ferry I had this good view of Savo Island, one which interests me because of its role in the Second World War. One of the Prime Ministers of Solomon Islands came from Savo.

If you see this posting, Jim Evans, you will be pleased to know that I have finally visited Sue Allen, albeit impromptu and a surprise, finding her at home with her daughters. We had a delightful 40 minutes together, and found much in common beside our interest in landscape photography. It wasn't hard to locate her, for her postings of images of her home property was all the direction I needed. And if you ever decide to set sail for the antipodes, you will be made very welcome by both of us... and we can show you some trains and let you loose in several harbours!
Climbing approach to Baiyambora Gorge
Yes, correct. I also wanted to ask you: did you ever get to Kingaham gorge? I was thinking of climbing it (or descending the gorge). I have no information on the approach and maybe you can help?
