The Society Islands

Papeete, French Polynesia

Tour "In Paul Gauguin's Footsteps"Tahiti is the largest island in Fr.Polynesia and they use the Polynesian franc.It is a self-governing French region.
Visited the Gauguin museum and the house he built and where he died.The museum is a series of small buildings in a square.Because of the heat and humidity the original paintings are locked away,we saw replicas.
That evening local dancers performed on board.
