- From Outside
This squat building is the largest of any in the collection of islands for the hamlet of Vawuea. Two large doors like that of a barn form the majority of one wall with another small door at one corner. No window can be seen though faint light shines out from cracks and a few holes. The post that stands here bares a single lantern and the sign of a woman, cross-armed in a large pot over a massive fire. Faded paint what once might have been a stark red but now is a barely-there brown reads in Alon: Witch’s Brew. The music and cinnamon sweet aroma drifts eagerly out to draw you in.
- From Inside
A short number of tables, each with guests though none filled, decorate a weathered, worn but clean floor. The air smells of sweetened cinnamon and smoke, partially from the fire and partially from the pipes hanging from a number of mouths, men and a few old women alike. The bar is but a few seats at a make shift counter, fashioned from a few old crates. The musicians – a few locals by the look of their unshaven faces and ruddy clothing – sit to the side of the hearth, playing and strumming and beating. “Go on then, make some room,” calls a wide waisted woman from the bar. A few rise from a table, making room for six to sit crowdedly.
