We leave tomorrow to catch the ferry, it was raining, but then stopped when we got to Moorea. There we picked up a tourist bus and began the journey to north on the only road around the island that is shaped like a heart. We stopped at a small bay Maharepa for to do accurate pictures of the silhouette of Mount Fairurani, which appears on the coin 50 francs Polynesians
Then we climbed to the viewpoint of The Belvedere, located in the heart of the island from where you can enjoy a wonderful panoramic view of the bays of Cook and Opunahu. On the way up we stopped to visit the archaeological remains of a village and pineapple plantations.
And more commercial, they took us to visit a vanilla plantation and a liquor distillery with tasting and sales of these products. We do not buy any bottle, we already had the full quota of supplies Chilean wine for the trip,
Already in the south we stopped at the viewpoint of Tautea, to watch the colors of the lagoon , hotels on stilts and eat at the Sofitel Hotel, just as it began to rain again. Collection and return to the pier.
The next day we still had time say goodbye to Tahiti, to their wives with the Tiare flower in the ear, such as Gauguin immortalized,t o a tropical tree called Memiso that every day we did a sort of cherry-flavored sweetened condensed milk, to our Kiriki rooster that woke us every day and then walked before us like all the chickens in Papeete, even they are under the McDonalds tables, to the color of its parks, but especially the hospitality of its people. If I get lost looking in Tahiti !
