We had a great time touring some of the archeological sites around the island. Our guide, Richard, spoke great English, and the other couple was from Germany, he being a travel writer. It poured half the day but you just don’t care here because everything dries eventually. The people here are very friendly and casual.
Richard even serenaded us with local music
this is a new church but almost across the street is a very old one with beautiful wood carvings which follow
one of the locals with full-body tattooing
even the roosters are beautiful
they were playing bacchi ball in the middle of the road
the polynesian canoes had arrived in this village to celebrate before leaving for HI and i found this discarded lei
downtown Hatihue where they’re playing bacchi ball
on our way back to Taiohae we had to stop for pigs crossing the road. Jim was salivating.
