The Kingdom of TongaAugust 20, 2012
Well, our trip is finally coming to a close, Sam and I made it back to San Francisco with a brief stint in the tiny island Kingdom of Tonga. Below are the photos from the last three weeks. Enjoy!
Our last day in NZ we spent camping near the cave in high winds and heavy rains without a chance of washing off the mud from spelunking. That morning we shoved our wet tent and muddy shoes in our bags and boarded a plane for the Kingdom of Tonga.
An awesome beach resort we visited on our second night to see some traditional Tongan dancing and feast
Kava circle (kava is the traditional drink of the Polynesian islands that is made from the root of the kava plant and has very mild tranquilizing effects). A Kava circle is only composed of men except for one woman to serve the kava, but there is some taboo about having relatives of the woman as part of the kava circle.
