The Sea of the Moon is a real place. Though its name conjures exotic stories of sailing ships, warriors, artists, and lovely carefree islanders, the sunny paradise has its dark side and taboos, which no one - native or tourist - may ever test. Testing the taboo can bring the offender great punishment!
This memory is a travel guide, a "thank you" to many people, and an invitation to explore not just Tahiti, but any part of the world one could wish to visit. This big blue ball has gifts for us all. This memoir is of a vacation my late husband and I took one week after the attacks of 9/11. We stayed for a month in this lovely little paradise, almost wishing we could live forever in this peaceful place. I hope you enjoy our memories.
