Extract:

„“Bienvenue a Raivavae,” said one as I stooped to accept one of the fragrant lei, made with tiaré gardenia blossoms, basil shoots, and local flora.

Raivavae (pronounced Rye-vah-vah-eh), is the third stop of our tour through French Polynesia’s Austral Islands onboard the combination cargo/passenger cruise ship Aranui 5, and the arrival scene has by now become familiar: troupes of musicians with ukulele and drums, children and dogs darting between everyone’s legs, ice-cold coconuts hacked open with machetes for refreshing drinks, stalls with local handicrafts staffed by smiling women in woven palm frond hats accented with intricate flower crowns.“
