Arrival at Rarotonga     

Trip Day Eighteen: Tuesday, October 9, 2007     

This is Rarotonga, Capital of the Cook Islands

6:47 AM ~ We're on our approach to the island. At this time we could easily see the whole side of the island, so we knew that it's not a particularily large island. A look at a map shows that one volcano is responsible for this one. We weren't due in until 8 AM, so we didn't get out on deck too early.
Sharp ridges mark the central mountain.


We're looking at the northwest side of the island in this view.
