pasifika

It takes a bit of getting used to, but at last this WordPress site is coming together. The photo galleries are nearly complete, so have a browse! Now it’s time to get adventurous and images to this page! These photos are from the just concluded Pasifika festival in Auckland. It’s the largest celebration of Polynesian culture in the world. I almost felt I was on a Pacific island somewhere.
