Sunday in Tonga

Tonga is traditionally very religious and on Sunday most people attend church, then relax and have a family feast. We went to St Joseph's Cathedral this morning and witnessed the most beautiful uplifting harmonic singing from the congregation. Everyone is dressed in their formal finery. For men this is a colourful shirt and a long skirt with a rush mat tied around the waist. The women were in smart dresses and wore decorative rush belts, with beautifully braided hair and flowers behind one ear.
