In addition to the Independence Day celebrations at Gorgeous Girl’s school there were also some where Gorgeous Man and I work.
This tree house was built for the occasion. It is the traditional house of the Koiari people.
This is the side view.
Gorgeous Girl and I climbed up to have a look.
Gorgeous Girl climbed right to the top.
The students dressed in traditional costumes.
There were demonstrations of how to prepare traditional food.
These girls are preparing coconut milk.
Students from other Pacific Islands also dressed in traditional costume for the occasion. These girls are from Rarotonga (Cook Islands).
I’m grateful for the opportunity to experience this first hand.
