“Parting is such sweet sorrow.”  -  Wm. Shakespeare

Well… parting from Te Maeva Nui Cultural Nights may bring some sorrow, but mostly the sweetness of this year’s amazing memories. The hard work and skill of so many people, focused on this celebration of The Cook Islands’ Constitution Day, was, is, and will be inspiring the rest of our lives.

What homo sapiens can do…
