In Tahiti you feel like you can capture a great photo by just pointing your camera in any direction and pressing the shutter button. But, for these ones, I had to climb up the steep hillside of Arue.
Yesterday morning it took us exactly fifty minutes to drive from Ārue along the northern coast and down the eastern coast to Taravao. We were headed for Faratea — situated just before the town of Taravao — where local motor clubs had organised a drag racing day event.
With forty participating drivers and many cars on display, the event promised to be interesting. But we could watch only a few runs before we had to return to Arue.
Like earlier, we drove along the eastern coast, and even at a leisurely pace, we were still able to make good time for our next engagement in Papeete.
