First landing in French Polynesia after 2 days and a bit passage from Pitcairn.
Firstly. Other cruisers come to say hello, bring a pamplemousse (grapefrout) and give all the tips about the anchorage and how to check in.
Secondly. After spending just under a year in Spanish speaking countries and not putting too much effort to learn but being able to communicate - I felt disabled again. Oh well, baby steps, baby steps.
