    Worrisome News from Rarotonga

    A few weeks ago I posted a link to a series of stories in the L.A. Weekly about a couple who moved from Los Angeles to Rarotonga, a small island in the South Pacific, with their two young children (the youngest an infant).

    They're not on that island anymore; they've moved on to New Zealand (the baby got very sick with the flu and needed better medical care). Read these stories in order:




    Sigh. This is why you can't go around the world in 80 days with young children - the risk is too great if they get sick. I think the baby is going to be OK, though.

    Sorry, again, about the light blogging. It's very busy in the office and with the boards coming up in three weeks my contributions will continue to be few and far between. I do have an idea or two for some longer posts and hope to get to them later this week.
