Just a couple of days until Saturday, Feb. 12, when we leave for another adventure to the beautiful islands of Tahiti. I think in our minds we have already left.... Will be spending a few days on Tahiti in Pape‘ete, and then off to Rangiroa in the Tuamotu atolls.
Also, I have just been confirmed to guest lecture on the "Aranui 3" out of Pape‘ete, Tahiti from July 16-29. The cruise ship/barge tours throughout the Tuamotu and Marquesas archipelago.
I will be giving several archaeological on-site visits throughout the cruise, and three "tentative" lectures:
- Polynesian voyaging/migration/settlement,
- regional history, and
- material culture of the region.
For my adventurous friends/family - would be great if you could join me on the Aranui 3 in July. Check out their site at: http://www.aranui.com Let me know! Would be a blast to have friends and/or family aboard. Uncle Jack??? You hearing me??!!
I will try to send out update notices during this immediate "adventure" when I am able. Not sure how my Internet situation will be once we're in French Polynesia.... :)
a hui hou!
