When you find yourself on an idyllic tropical island, surrounded by unspoiled nature, whales frolicking in the background...what is the first thing that comes to mind?
Why, a game of cribbage of course.
Several of my travel companions to Tonga organised a couple of late-night sessions while we were at Mounu Island Resort. Cards were dealt; alcohol was consumed; shrieks were emitted; egos were crushed...and yet, I still have no idea what cribbage is.
Perhaps that's because I was too exhausted to try to learn the rules, so I fiddled with my phone to document the proceedings.
Given the fact that it was practically pitch black but for the kerosene lamps and a handful of light bulbs, the photos turned out nicely I think.
