Okay, in my ukelele journey I have learned a bit of pata pata (melody line with some tremolo) although I am sadly lacking in the consistent use of tahiri (a good Tahitian, syncopated strum). Edna, ma copine has told me that I am a “pata pata fata” which is a show off who insists on playing the melody! As my grandmother Tess always said, “large tail our cat has.”
And then we were so hot that we had to go for a swim. Lovina organized a big Ma’a Tahiti lunch for Sunday so that Marilyn and I could really taste all the traditional Tahitian foods. It was quite a spread. Moe has prepared the breadfruit (Uru).
Here we are, all sated after a feast of four kinds of fish, two kinds of poisson cru, patates, uru, crab, po’e and more.
As the “days dwindle down to a precious few,” Marilyn and I still have some projects to complete. I have a list. Visit to Huahine Iti for another snorkel. Check. Make some jewelry. Check. Make more drawings. Check. Paint more frames for my abstract animation project:
