The evening ends as all good evenings should in Wone Luak with the stones singing the song of sakau for a new generation of Salvadors at Luak. The stones, for years silent, have been brought back to life with the return of the eldest son. The weeds have been whacked and the nahs painted. At night the nahs is lit brightly by fluorescent lights and the sound of laughter and mirth fill the night air. And once again the stones sing.
