This past Saturday my host mother Una (who is wearing the hat in the picture below) took a group of us (palangis) to the next village to visit an underground cave. The only of its kind in Tonga, this cave has a natural freshwater swimming pool at the bottom. Since the generator was broken, the entire thing was lit by candlelight.
When we reached the bottom of the cave, we were able to swim. The water felt so good as the heat that day was especially unbearable. This is something I need to get use to. Unlike America, Tonga is moving into the Wet/Hot season meaning that December will no longer be filled with Bing-Crosby-esque snow scenes. Instead it will be in the 90s and humid - so more like Florida in July. Anyway, back to the story.
Hope you had a fabulous Saturday too!
