Today, October 24th 2016, we are in Bora Bora, our last night with our friends Katie and Karel. They are flying back to a cold and rainy Belgium tomorrow. We will be sailing back to Tahiti for a stop of 4-5 days and then on to Apataki to leave the boat for the cyclone season.
I cannot believe the months of september and october went by so fast! We left Apataki (Tuamotus) in august to meet with our friends, Marine and Simon-Pierre (Jambote) on the atoll Ahe. We only stayed there 4 days but it was gorgeous! We decided to go back next year when we pick up the boat and we will follow a course to get our diving certificate.
While in Ahe we found a place where they produced monoi oil the artisanal way. No chemicals or machines involved. I bought 2 bottles of 0,5l for 10USD each where in the stores you pay easily 8USD for half the quantity. It was nice to support the local economy this way.
We are happy we will be coming back to this beautiful atoll in may-june 2017 and be able to spend more days here before we leave French Polynesia.
