| From the wettest west part of Norway we are two families who have
settled here from July until November 1999. Our plans for this travel have developed over
several years, from far-out-dreams until we handed in our applications for leaves from our
jobs, bought the tickets and headed west over the oceans. We had to save some money, had
to find a house to stay in here, had to rent out our house at home, have somebody take
care of our dog, sell our car. Then we had to take our children out of school, and arrange
our little privet school here around our kitchen-table, in our house in Titikaveka.
more then three month we have lived here, and we know we did right. All though the weather
has been changing, and we have had more cloudy days than we had expected, the temperature
in the lagoon is steady on about 26 C. Some days we have had more rain coming down from
the clouds than from our sprinkling shower. Today we have four seasons in one day, said a guy how came by with
a handful of bananas.
The bananas dont taste like the ones we get at home. When they ripe on the trees they have a different sweetness. I had at least seven, Jon said when we wondered where all those bananas had gone. And the papaya. The one in the store at home only Randi liked, here we all love it, so tasteful and sweet. It is winter here on Rarotonga. The temperature is around 24 Celsius, a comfortable sommer for us coming from Norway. But we soon get spoiled. A little bit of wind and clouds, and we stay away from the beach.
Its spring at Rarotonga. The temperature is about 26 C, very comfortable for us. And while you in Europe and USA are going towards winter, we are waiting for summer to come.
