Reacquainting Myself with Paradise
"I now make my apologies to Panama, Samoa, Vanuatu, Bali, Djibouti, Egypt, and Malta, to name a few of the places I remember fondly. I've had to choose and the guilt of playing favorites hastens me to justify that the scales were tipped because time is on French Polynesia's side. My longest layover in two-and-a-half years of sailing was the five months spent between a couple Marquesan islands, Tahiti and Moorea, a place of friends, foods, sights, sounds and smells that I happily and thoroughly absorbed. Everything about the exotic blend of French and Polynesian cultures created by nature, the natives, and the people who have chosen these remote islands over continental life seemed fabulously cool to my maturing sense of aesthetics."
