52c Tahiti - Papeete

Lunch was a Tahitian Ceviche, made up of raw tuna marinated in lime and
lemon juice, carrot, onion, cucumber and tomatoes. Bound together with
mayonnaise, made it resemble a coleslaw. Served with rice it was a
delicious and filling lunch. Accompanied with juices and fresh tropical
fruits, that always taste just that little bit better when consumed on a
South Pacific Island.

Always of interest is Tahiti Airport. It's runway is so close to the waters
edge that before any vessel can cross either end of it, the skipper must
contact the tower to ensure there are no planes landing or taking off. Even
Captain Lye and the local pilot had to radio for permission before the Sea
Princess could enter the harbour earlier that day.
