    Rarotonga Punanga Nui Market-Put it on your Wish List

    This is my last post from The Island, today sadly we go home.
    I thought I should post some images of the Punanga Nui Market

    Every Tourist should put a visit to The Market on their wish list
    It opens around 8am every Saturday
    It is so colourful
    It’s where we go to get the fresh produce, buy gifts and bits of Raro to take home
    Great Smoothies, all that fresh Tropical Fruit

    This weekend there was the official opening of the new Stage for the Market.

    As with most things on the Island, it took a while to build but finally there it is, in all its glory.
    There was an official opening, then several Dance groups performed for us

    My friend Trish, who just loves the Island, joined her sewing circle, who sewed while the dignitaries spoke.

    Meanwhile our friends Vira and Barbara held court at Vira’s Massage Hut

    When in Rarotonga you must visit Vira he is such a good masseuse
    We walked out of his hut feeling like a million dollars

    First we went to Café Salsa for breakfast.

    This is a must for everyone. Highly recommended.
    Dale had poached eggs on smoked Marlin Hash with Hollandaise

    I had Eggs Benedict

    Both were excellent

    Meanwhile, here are some images of the people, we found fascinating
