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.
