February 15, 2019        Papeete -Tahiti  36/183

Papeete, located on the main island of Tahiti, is the capital city of French Polynesia.  Often French Polynesia is referred to as the Islands of Tahiti.  Being a French territory, residents were given citizenship in 1946, then status was changed to an "overseas county" in 2004.  60% of all residents of French Polynesia live in or around Papeete.  Looks like a modern, progressive society with normal infrastructure and beautiful residences.

We went on a catamaran / snorkelling excursion.

Interesting that we have only seen one other cruise ship so far in 36 days!  Nice not to have crowded ports.
