Back in New Zealand

Hello everyone,

Sorry for my lack of updates recently. I have had a bit of a rollercoaster two weeks and have had to cut my time in Aitutaki short by two and a half weeks. This follows after having had a scooter accident and getting a reasonable wound to the left knee that would have done better back in New Zealand. So I had to rush and re-arrange flights and returned earlier this week after a rollercoaster week.

It certainly does not help with my "post-elective blues" that I had to come away in a rush. I was given a massive send off with 1 shell necklace, 6 eis (flower necklaces) and 3 flower head bands on my last day. I did look like a dork wearing all of them at the airport but I knew I was well-loved.

Me, covered in a few "eis" at Aitutaki Airport on the day I left. There are a few more in a plastic bag on the table that I wasn't wearing at the time!
As for all the bits I promised about the blog... I will slowly write about each place on Aitutaki now that I am back in a place with more reliable technology and internet, and hopefully with complementary map to each locations! ;) It will take time, but I hope you will be patient with me.
