When we got to Fatu Hiva we had an extra used Walmart head
light...cost $13 with a working batteries..2/AA I think...that was so popular we could not carry all the fruit and veggies the stand owner traded us for it and another guy rowed out to the boat pointing to his head
wanting one. Please take a couple of those to trade
along the way...you won't be sorry. The girls love hair clips for fun. The ladies wanted perfume but the wanted better quality than I was willing to part with. If you find some sealed on sale
you may have a good bargaining chip.
Big POINT here...look for David the carver. He will sell tiki gods and other things, for far less at his shop than our friends paid in Tahiti....like half. And they are really collectable..he is very famous....one of the best. Has write ups in top magazines...we know that now. We paid about $250...they paid $1800 for a bit larger one, tho. Very rich, dark wood. My Capt knows what kind.
Also enjoy all the free limes and lots of mostly free pamplemousse there. We took the pulp of the pamplemousse and mixed it with gin for a health
I envy you the best part and wish I were young enough to go around again!!!
