    Re: King of Tonga dies today

    I was at a swap meet in Seattle called the
    "Midway Swapmeet".
    One day the King and his retinue arrived and shopped.
    I'll have to go through my images .
    The Tongan culture used pottery, that is, baked vessels.
    The DNA structure of the original tribes of Taiwan is having
    an important place in tracing the roots of this particular
    tribal migration.

    King of Tonga dies today

    The King of Tonga died today. He was 63. I am waiting for more news. I met him once years ago. He was not a popular monarch, much less popular than his father, Taufahau Tupou IV, but he did usher in a new age of democracy in the island Kingdom.

    May he sail the oceans in freedom.
