Title: The Marquesas - Hiva Oa - Photos 2

It was an uphill walk from the village to get to the cemetery where Hiva Oa's more recent celebrities are buried - Paul Gauguin and Jacques Brel.
 
A French sign and Polynesian carving.
 
 
The well known (but not to us!) Belgian song writer.
 
Paul Gauguin moved here from France. A museum with replicas of his paintings is on the main street
in the village.
 
More Polynesian carving.
