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.
