Kia Orana! ("hello" in Cook Islands Maori)

Hello from Raratonga, the main island in The Cook
Island chain. 

We have been here since August 2nd.  We leave for New
Zealand on Wednesday August 16th.

We have had a great time, exploring the island,
hanging out on the beach and taking in all the native
culture and tradition.  We even got certified as open
water scuba divers!

As always you can check out details of all our
adventures and all the new pictures on the web site:

We added a new feature to the site.  When we find cool
native arts and crafts we are going to put them up on
the site for you to look at.  If you really like any
item, you can purchase it from us and we will send it
directly to your home.

Hope all is well and stay in touch via email.

E no' o ake ra, ("goodbye" in Cook Islands Maori)

Lisa and Joel
