Today the crew of Argo cleared into the Cook Islands and explored the town of Avarua on Rarotonga. Most of the crew went to the local market that takes place every Saturday. The market had a wide variety of local food, crafts, and music. After some time ashore we gave Argo a little love and made here look good. We have had a lot of people walk and drive by today and we are starting to think we are one of the bigger sailboats that has been here recently. All and all Raratonga has turned out to be a nice place with nice people. Tomorrow we are planning to go hiking into the interior of the island which should be fun.
