As soon as you land at the airport ,welcomed by the pervading perfume of Frangipani ,you immediately step into Cook Island time .

banana plantation

A Banana plantation .It was hard to find ripe (yellow) bananas to buy ,as bananas are cooked green ,and are rather nice cooked on a barbecue that way .

Mama Neke might never imagine her sign will be seen around the world (by sympathetic gardeners )
The sign reads :
