Nothing compares to being an outer island volunteer. The language, relationships and sense of humor I developed my first two years (on 'Uiha Island, Ha'apai) were integral to any successes in my extension year (in Nuku'alofa). Working with the Tonga Preschool Association, we were able to get early childhood education as a priority for the Ministry of Education and help the government take the initial steps needed to develop an infrastructure for the program's future. During my time as a volunteer we loss volunteer Tessa Horan (Feb 2006); The King, Taufa'ahau Tupou IV died and his eldest son, King Siaosi Tupou V, succeeded him. (Sept 2006); Rioting connected to a democracy rally caused the destruction of most of downtown Nuku'alofa. The day was later called "Black Thursday" (Nov 11 2006).
