Wednesday, September 12, 2007 - Pig Roast

12 September 2007 | Niuatoputapu, Tonga
Don
This evening a local family entertained the cruisers from the seven boats at anchor by having a traditional Tongan pig roast at their home. Besides the pork we had mixed vegetables, chow mein, breadfruit, curried horse meat, and candied mangoes. The horse meat was very much like beef and much more tender than I expected. Naturally, a good time was had by all.

On the way back to the wharf we stopped at the town hall to join an informal kava drinking session. The patrons, mostly men, were very happy to have us join them. Kava is a very mild intoxicant the Pacific Islanders have been drinking socially and ceremonially for many centuries. It tastes like mud! After several cups and feeling very little effect I decided it was time to head back to the boat while I could still walk.

All else is well onboard. The anchorage is very secure and I am sleeping well.
