24 August tokonaki (Saturday) Ag Show

The sun came out so we headed off on Bas to the Royal Tongatapu agricultural Annual Show about 10kms on the grounds of Atele High School. Atele is one the notorious boys schools involved in a generational feud that has been making the news due to ongoing violence among current and ex students. the last eruption saw a young man end up in hospital in a coma and 147 arrests.  After 24 hours of torrential rain the grounds could only be described as a big brown bog.  We happened upon the coconut stripping event which was fiercely competitive and showed great skill. Who needs a wood chop or an expensive equestrian arena. The pictures can tell the rest of this story.

I managed to find some 2cm wedgey shoes for the ball at a small marketi on our way home.  Needing a little more fresh air after a lazy afternoon we had fish burgers and chips for dinner… a short Bas ride at Cottage Breeze restaurant on the other side of town.
