The Local Gazette Review - Tonga

by Sachin Balagopalan on February 19, 2007 · 1 comment

Every now and then I like to surf the web for regional and local on-line newspapers from around the world including the US. If you are curious about other places, people and cultures or love to travel then this is the next best thing to actually getting on a plane and travelling there. Almost every city,town,county or village on the planet has a regional or local newspaper available on-line. All you need to do is google “use the google” ;-) and search for “newspapers in Australia” for example. There is a website where you can also search for newspapers by country and region. It is amazing how much you can learn about an area or region and what the locals are up to. You get a sense that you’re part of their community and living there yourself.

Today I checked out the an on-line newspaper from Tonga called Matangi. Here are some snippets.

“The 2007 Vava’u Festival will kick off on January 26 with a Triathlon in the morning, and a display of Culture and Art in Neiafu during the rest of the day.”

“The capital Nuku’alofa was jolted by 5.7 magnitude earthquakes just before mid-night last night, January 5, the first earthquake to be felt at the capital this year.Looks like they are on the fault line and earthquakes are common.

A Tonga government policy restricting the number of whale watching boats to two boats per licensed operator is causing frustration among some of Tonga’s pioneer whale watching operators in Vava’u, who say that the policy is unfair and restricts their growth, while allowing in amateurs.”

Tonga’s national rugby team the ‘Ikale Tahi finally qualified to participate in the 2007 Rugby World Cup on Saturday, February 10 after thrashing South Korea 85-3 at the Waitemata Park, Auckland, New Zealand.” Sounds like rugby is the national sport.
