Stopover in Faaite

We came in to Faaite yesterday afternoon. We took a walk around the lovely little village today (just 400 people live here) and arranged an appointment with the mayor. We asked about the status of Tahanea, found out that the people of Faaite see it rather as a food reserve than a nature reserve and tried to convince the mayor to actively protect the bird motus in the south for future generations.

Now we’re getting Pitufa ready to head out again through the pass later in the afternoon. We’ll set sail towards Tahiti soon!
