Papeete, Tahiti

The Coronavirus is really starting to impact our ports of call. We were supposed to stop at an atoll named Fakarava and then go to Papeete. The French Polynesian government mandated that all ships coming to French Polynesia have to stop at Papeete to be screened first before proceeding to any of the smaller islands. Unfortunately, to do that, we had to sail past Fakarava and there wasn’t time to go back. So we arrived in Papeete on a Saturday afternoon and stayed through Sunday. The problem is on Sunday pretty much nothing is open and it poured rain on Saturday and Sunday, so going out was a challenge. We were able to go to the local market on Sunday morning before they closed at 9:00am but then that was about it. I just realized I haven’t downloaded the few photos we have of Papeete so I’ll do that later.
