英会話ブログ その525     The Seven Headed Palm (1)

2014/11/22

Kelly and I had been wandering through the jungle and clearings studded with palm trees for several exhausting hours.

We were on the South Pacific island of Eua, which was one of many coral atolls comprising of the Tongan Islands, the so-called, "Friendly Islands", in the Kingdom of Tonga.

Kelly was a horticulturalist-biologist from Colorado and he was in search of, "The Seven Headed Palm."  (A palm tree with one trunk and seven branches.  Each branch, in itself, was a separate palm tree.)                               (V.C)
