Where I stayed

Flag of French Polynesia  , Society Islands,
Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Back to the real world (after the Hilton Resort), which meant fighting mosquitos, collecting gekko droppings off the floor and trying to fall asleep to whining bird chicks. There was also the possibility of a tropical storm hitting the island, but luckily that eventually never happened. The sun & the rain were switching places rather quickly, so quite a few times we had to dash from our pool chairs/beach towels to the safety of our bungalow. While waiting for the sun to come back, we befriended a cat and a few chickens, so we were hardly left alone during our stay here. And I got the opportunity to swim-with-a-crab in our swimming pool -> ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME-EXPERIENCE!!!

A tiny village was close to our lodgings, so it was easy to get some food and find restaurants. I found it a bit difficult to stay on a totally vegetarian diet, so I slipped a few times (but don't tell anyone, ok?!). But I stayed well away from chicken, which I have eaten maybe twice since mid-December.
