Photo hunt: Kirikiti

Tomorrow is Pasifika Day. More than 13 island nations assemble at Western Springs.

I was very curious about this game Kirikiti which looks like a cross between baseball and cricket. I went closer, and the players were very happy for me to take their photos. I ask my Samoan students. They say it is very popular and they play here in Auckland as church groups. They wear their lavalava,when they play. Both men and women wear their lavalava akin to the Thai and Malaysian sarongs. Only they wear them shorter.

Photo hunt: what sports do you play?
