After a few days in the guesthouse it was time to find somewhere to live. Housing in Tonga varies greatly - see the pictures! The mansion beside the water belongs to friends. Ours is the rather suburban looking one! It is in fact NZ built and huge.
We have 2 volunteer houses with 3 volunteers and some partners in each. Ours is in a fabulous compound with our neighbours - an Australian/Tongan couple and their 3 children. Note Jan having a bear with Salesi our landlord (unbelievably Jan is clutching a can of Fosters).
We also have choocks and several pigs plus lots of fruit trees. I'm trying to plant some veggies (where the chooks cannot dig them up) and Jan is helping the guys on the land plant taro.
