... we hadn't bought any alcohol) - this time Tom got the pat down treatment. So we boarded Air Tahiti Nui bound for Tahiti. This was a 6 hour flight in seats of our choosing. :) I watched the Nicole Kidman "Grace of Monaco" - it was more about politics than I expected, but entertaining enough. Food?
