^^^These kids had heaps of fun at the Agriculture Show and you most likely would of had you been here. Free coconuts, pineapples soaked in vanilla syrup harvested from the South Pacific. Baby pigs, kings, shoeless children, singing. See... those are some cool things.
Seriously, guys. The Agriculture Show was so good that I had to post about it 3 times. That's a lot of talk about veggies, fish and handicrafts. But that's also a lot of what Tonga is about. Come here (points to ground) and I'll show you. Or just look at these pictures. That's cool, too.
It was a day full of Everything-Tonga. And the people of Tonga sure do have a lot to celebrate. They live in a land that is beautiful and rich in so so much. No wonder their pride for their country is so huge! So huge that they have the white girl paint flags on their faces!
^^^One of the many reasons that the Agriculture Show was so spectacular is that everyone participated. Even this little guy who played the trumpet when his grandpa wasn't.
^^^One of the top 5 cutest moments of my life happened at the Agriculture Fair, too. I noticed this little guy following this Tongan man around. The guy, all tattooed up and looking tough, picked him up and snuggled him a bit before the little pig fell asleep in his arms. (Molly! I'll bring you one home!)
^^^Oh yeah. And the company at the Agriculture Show was pretty rad too. It was a great time to get together with other Peace Corps Volunteers and explore.
