The ideal tropical setting is always pictured with the presence of a coconut tree. But on the island of Kisar, also small island with a tropical setting, there are only Lontar trees or palmyra palm trees. It’s also from the palm family as you can see yet it’s very different. So what’s so special about it? The leave is the material we use to write on before we knew paper. But the most special thing about it is that it’s the material for the local alcohol drink called Sopi. Now that’s what makes a tropical setting! *peace
