On my first night here on the island of Tahuata, Joelle had made me the biggest thickest floral necklace as a welcome. C'est tres magnifique! This morning she gave me a flower for behind my ear, and showed me a bag of flowers that she is going to make up into a new necklace for me as we leave later this morning. It is moments like this that the words 'I feel truly blessed' come to mind. I guess that works in this large town of say 500 people where the size of the church exceeds the size of any house by huge amounts. Well this town is the capital of this island.
