With today’s Country File we’re getting into neighbouring places we’ll see about working into our Tahiti trip, and this is French Polynesia’s neighbour to the west: Kūki ‘Āirani, commonly known as the Cook Islands!
— which is, in fact, different from conventional practice; the Cook Islands are not a member of the United Nations, although they’re thinking about it; they are a self-governing state within the Realm of New Zealand, with New Zealand generally responsible for foreign affairs —
— and it has no inscribed or tentative World Heritage Sites yet!
