Impressions from Tahiti

< Bora Bora > < Huahine > < Mo`orea > < Tahiti >
Tahiti, Jan 2006 ---under (never ending...) construction---
We have not spent time enough on Tahiti to see even close to all points of interest. Aside of strolling through Papeete, and a stop in Arue at the James Norman Hall Estate, we circled the Tahiti Nui (the larger half-island) and we drove along the north shore of Tahiti Iti, the smaller part of the Island. We stopped at a few places of interest and "inhaled" some of the local Tahiti way of living.

Points of interest not seen, or overseen by mistake: Gauguin Museum and the Museum of the Islands. Needless to say: we have to go back and do it again!
