This is an authorized translation in English of a post in French by @marc-allaria: Sulawesia - Stop#7 - Sewia...!
As my primary language is not English, there are probably some mistakes in my translation.

Inhabitants of Sewia
I leave Maratua after a month of diving and before my new habits take precedence over my desire for nomadism. I follow the advice of my friends at the Nasubu Hotel and go to the Pasoso Islands in the North of Sulawesi.
The stopover happens the next day in the village of Sewia. A small bay and a tiny village are waiting for me. And yet, the tranquility of the bay fades quickly when I arrive. Quickly about twenty canoes come out of the landscape of the beach and come to meet me. Some boatmen try to sell me some food but that is not their first intention. Curiosity remains the prime motivation for their visit. The discussions are not obvious because of our differences in languages, but I still manage to make an appointment for the next day and get information on a dive site.
