Orderly Tahitians

While no flights were allowed into French Polynesia we observed that people went back to their normal behaviour–no masks, kisses for greetings, etc. We were worried that they would not change these customs when the borders were opened again. Fortunately we were wrong: In town almost everybody is wearing masks now (many in colourful Polynesian patterns), people queue with respectful distance in supermarkets and I was surprised when the cashier at ‘Champion’ disinfected every single coin and banknote when I did my shopping there today. No cases in Tahiti so far, we hope for the best.
