We hired a guide and her taxi. Marie-Jo came highly recommended, and she is an excellent driver. Thank goodness as once we saw the tracks we were glad of her expertise and knowledge. And despite the language difficulties we managed to get a good feeling of the life on a Marquesan island.
Here she is collecting chilli peppers growing wild!
A lovely bay called Hanaiapa on the north side of the island. Every road leads to one central roundabout so you cannot do a circular tour of the island. We passed the roundabout four times on the day tour!!
This is black Negro rock ...
Some lush valleys along the way up or down. There are no plains on the island except at the airport so you are either going up or down!!
