Tomorrow afternoon, there will be a total Solar Eclipse that very
few people on Earth will be able to witness. One of those few places
however will be in the Cook Islands. We visited the small nation of
the Cook Islands in 2003 (particularly the islands of Rarotonga and
Aitutaki) and I can't think of too many places where a full eclipse would
be more beautiful. For those who don't know, the Cook Islands are a
small archipeligo of islands about the same distance south of the
equator as Hawaii is north of the Equator and on the same latitude.
It's a truly wonderful place and the people are very friendly toward
travelers. I'd be happy to share my thoughts or any tips to those that
are interested in visiting this paradise!
