Did the cross island trek with PA in Rarotonga and as many lagoon tours as possible in Aitutaki. Or just go stay in one of those little bungalows on Maina motu....or just hang out at the bar at Samade on the Beach or over at Popoara.....my buddies....:)

sunny regards,

shully

p.s. Oh and buy some perfume from Perfumes of Rarotonga and some coconut soap from the Perfume Factory.

Had a drink at Trader Jacks during a rainy patch.

Walked on Muri Beach on a clear night with a chardonnay haze, gazing at the Southern Cross.

Read my book on the deck of my room.

Had at least two meat pies.

Took in the view from the Hospital.

I was not planning on church b/c I am not religious in the church-going way, but from everyone's posts on this, it sounds like an amazing cultural experience not to be missed. Plus, that music on Tiki's movie is just too incredible. I really have never heard anything so amazing!
