A man walks through ever increasing Spring tide flood waters to his home in the taisala. On the over-populated Fogafale islet, Funafuti, Tuvalu the 'borrow pits' have become squatter settlements for outer-islanders, the land is leased and homes are constructed with whatever materials can be found. Waste management on the islet is a constant struggle for the kaupule, the town council in the absence modern systems let alone people who are forced to live in these areas.
