Mark was playing his ukulele in the park, and this kid wanted to try it. He had never played a Hawaiian uke before, and they're tuned differently than the Tahitian ukes they play in the Cook Islands. He figured it out quickly and started playing a two-chord tune over and over. Mark tried to take it back from him after a few minutes, but he wouldn't let go! No matter what Mark said or how hard he tugged on it, the kid kept a grip on it, laughing the whole time like it was a fun game. Mark finally got it back from him, after telling him he couldn't play it the next time he saw him if he didn't let go.

On June 21, 2003, Mark Frauenfelder and Carla Sinclair moved from Los Angeles to the South Pacific. Our first stop is Rarotonga, a tiny island in the South Pacific. We're bringing our two young daughters with us.

This is our story, one photograph at a time.
