If you ever find yourself on Muri Beach, Rarotonga, you may come across this pond, set in a tropical garden full of banana, paw-paw (papaya) & passion fruit trees. Roosters, hens and their chicken roam free as well as well-fed dogs and cats.
The pond is full of lotus flowers as well as lotus buds and pods. Fish live inside together with a large eel.
No mud, no lotus.
