So Far

I recently just arrived back from my home of the Cook Islands, it was a blast.Met a lot of people and relaxed. Rocky flight on the way but real good way to kick off the holidays.

Unfortunately my reason of departure was for my Grandfathers unveiling of his headstone in one of the outer islands , but nevermind. Well on the first day, my family & I went around Rarotonga countless times, visiting people, and shopping. 28 degrees was the low, and I was sweating as soon as I got out of the truck. On that same day I went with my niece who lives there, to the valley to feed the neighbours & her pig. I couldn't really manage to cut the coconut, so I handed it over. As time flew by it was time for bed.......

The next morning, I heard the rooster saying "Cockle, doodle, Doo" I quickly launched myslef off the bed to see that it was 11:00. I wondered around the house to see were my family had been, then I rushed to the kitchen table and saw a note which stated "be home at six, motorbikes outside". Had a shower, and got myself ready, I thought "I should go auntys house" so I locked the house and left on the bike. Even if I wasn't old enough to ride the bike nobody was stopping me once again the flew by within a click.....

Throughout the last week of my duration in the Cook Islands, I Travelled to one of the outer islands called Mangaia in a small Air Rarotanga plane about 1/4 of the size of an Air Nz plane. My papas unveiling was turned out to be very great. I think I met most of my cousins and a few of my Aunties & Uncles. I also purchased a few merchandise from one of there main shops.

Overall the 3rd experience of my lifetime was great, I recommend to all teachers that you guys should visit the beautiful island.
