Mtsamboro, the third largest island in the lagoon, as seen from the southwest. The island has neither running water nor electricity, so there are only a few huts on it, mostly farmers who pass their time cultivating bananas and citrus fruits, namely tangerines, oranges, and grapefruits.

"People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the seas, at the long course of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering." St. Augustine, 354 430
