Tongatapu, Tonga’s Strange Little Capital Island

When most tourists visit Tonga, they blow through Tongatapu and make their way to Tonga’s picturesque outer islands. The capital, Nuku’alofa, itself is quiet to the point where in some parts, pigs and dogs outnumber people by a decent margin. My friend, Hannah, and I opted to spend our entire stay in Nuku’alofa to save money so that we could spend it on swimming with humpback whales. Since we’d only be joining the whales in the water for three days, that gave us plenty of time to explore Tongata...

Lying to Locals in Tongatapu

Within seconds of landing, Tonga felt Polynesian. There was a light breeze in the air that took me back to my previous trip through the South Pacific, and that combined with the scent of coconut oil had me feeling as though I’d never left. Immigration had strung fairy lights across their desks and smiling officials welcomed me to their country. I made my way outside and grinned. I couldn’t believe I was actually in Tonga. Two weeks ago, I had announced to Dave I wanted to visit this little-known...

New island offers clues in search for life on Mars: NASA

The world's newest island -- formed during a volcanic eruption in the remote Pacific three years ago -- may offer clues to how life potentially developed on Mars, NASA said Wednesday. The island of Hunga Tonga Hunga Ha'apai rose from the seabed about 65 kilometres (40 miles) northwest of the Tongan capital Nuku'alofa in late 2014-early 2015. Jim Garvin, the chief scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, said it was a rare chance to study the life cycle of a newly created island.

REVIEW: “Children of the Mountain” & “Nkosi Coiffure” – Tribeca Film Festival

Section: Viewpoints   As I’m told, motherhood can be as beautiful as it is challenging.  I’m confident that Essuman (Rukiyat Masud) has been told this many a time, but also certain that she’s never quite listened to those words until now. Living happily in her little community in Accra, pregnant for the man she unconditionally, but stupidly loves, Essuman’s joyous existence is broken when she gives birth early and discovers that her child has a cleft lip (aka cleft palate), an opening in the lip...
