It may be caused by fatigue of a long journey, I caught a bad cold when the airplane arrived from Easter Island to Papeete, then I was sleeping in the hotel most of the time in Papeete.
After all, I didn't go anywhere except that I waled around the hotel during the three days stay. My impression of Tahiti is stalls called 'Roulottes' in French only, which appears in the harbor in the evening.
I just remember the color of the sky at sunset was the strangely beautiful. Even though the sun was sinking, the sky above was still blue yet, then it soon changed to purple.
