Papeete Ukeleles


It's a good day when you make this discovery on the corner of town where you happen to be. And you happen to be there because while you were waiting at the bus stop, a woman stopped and offerd a ride to you and your toddler which you accepted surprised but glad. So instead of cramming into the faded, worn bus full of people, you get to talk to a Tahitian dance teacher and exchange stories in French about your children. And so when you get to town, this is where you say good-bye to your stranger good samaritan now friend. The chorus of voices and the strumming of ukeleles makes you stop and for many long moments, you know that all you need to do is just stand there and enjoy. Such happy sounds in a happy world.
