1) Eat breakfast
Here’s a brilliant way to begin your day in Raro – take a slice of locally-grown pawpaw, peel one of the island’s thin-skinned ladyfinger bananas, squeeze the juice of a segment of lime over it all, and eat. It’s delicious sunshine on a plate.
It’s inexpensive, too. Right now in Rarotonga pawpaws are as little as $3 at any shop or roadside stall, and bananas are around $6 for a bunch of six or eight. Limes are around $6 a kilogram.
Most days we figured that was easily inexpensive enough to go for seconds.
