Gracious Welcome

We arrived in Tahiti at 1 am in the morning, and even though the hotel was only 5 minutes away from the airport and we could take a shuttle, our hosts insisted on meeting us, greeting us with beautiful leis and driving us there.  We were even more humbled by their warm welcome when we found out they had about an hour drive from their homes to get to the airport.


  1. The hospitality of the island people is very good.

  2. Could those white blossoms be tuberose? I can almost smell it from the picture. What thoughtful and generous people.
