|This is the airport at Papatee. Notice the sleigh and reindeer Christmas decorations.|
|When we arrived at Tahiti we discovered we had a 5 hour wait before the next flight to Bora-Bora. The temperature was about 85F° and the humidity very high.
Here is Jan checking out the local beer, Hinano, which was very welcome.
|One of the first things we noticed were the flowers everywhere.

There was one pleasant thing about missing our original flight to Bora-Bora. While waiting for the next plane we found the most wonderful little French cafe hidden away behind the fast-food cafeteria. Unfortunately we didn't get any pictures but you can find the place if you look. It was called Rose Des Vents (Roses on the Wind?). We had a nice, leisurely lunch there with a few glasses of wine and enjoyed it immensely. Great service, friendly people, nice atmosphere. It looked like the place where locals go for a nice business lunch. Just a tip for anyone else with time to kill at the Papeete airport.
