The Seychelles is a small archipelago in the Indian Ocean that relies heavily on tourism. It is about two-and-a-half times the size of Washington, D.C., with a population of roughly 90,000. Ninety percent of the people speak creole. They are mostly of African, French, Indian, Chinese, and Arab descent. Roughly 30 percent of the population works in a job related to tourism, and the industry provides about 70 percent of the hard-earned money in the country.

The above video, Big Little World, is a series of moments strung together in time by a man who went to visit a girlfriend who had a medical internship in the country. His name is Paul Wex and his edit is filled with intimate moments from places that might otherwise have been hard to access.
