    How I Survived the Hurricane called Oli

    For the very first time in my life I experienced a hurricane. It was Hurricane Oli that came over Raiatea island the 3rd of February 2010. And as it occurred exactly at the time of my stage of the LC-A race, I couldn't avoid to take some pictures and share this experience with you in a location, even if the hurricane in itself isn't a "real" location....

    Nightlife in Raiatea???

    As for the LC-A race location at least one is needed to be about "Night and Music Delirium (bar, view, park)" I thought myself, wow, this one will be hard to find for my stage locations about Raiatea Island..... let's say it short: there is absolutely NO NIGHTLIFE on Raiatea.... :( But perhaps I could find a good place to shoot at night...?

    There's one very special place on Raiatea I'd like to show you: it's located in the village of Tevaitoa on the west coast. This village has a place that can perfectly symbolize 3 important moments of the history of Raiatea and Polynesia. On the same place you can find a marae, a protestant church and a battlefield of and ultimate fight against the french army in 1897...

    Marae of Taputapuatea

    When I arrived on Raiatea last summer and asked people what could be interesting to visit on this island, all told me "marae of Taputapuatea".... sorry, but "mara-what of Tapauatatu what????" Didn't absolutely understand what was the name of this place and what it could be.... Curious to know more about this strange place? Don't worry, I'll explain it to you :)
