Description:Summary: This is a story about five blind men and five bald men. They stay at a rest house. When they were staying there the bald men said to the blind men: 'let's go to Malaita'. The bald men trick the blind men. They go in a canoe and pretend to go to Malaita but they return to their own village. They tell the blind men to take off their clothes when they arrive at the shore because Malaitan people don't wear any clothes. But when they go to the hut and find everything is the same as their own house and when their sisters come with food to feed them in the evening they realise that the bald men have tricked them.
