Yesterday was yet another bank holiday in Tahiti and the weather was perfect.
When it comes to organising events, the Tahitians are second to none. Families flocked to the Paofai Park in Papeete for a day of fun packed activities which are all free of charge.
People bought bags of oranges on sale from the Punaauia festival of the orange. Oranges are collected from the Tamanu plateau in a gruelling race.
As the sun was sinking over the horizon, a big screen was inflated and families gathered on the grass to watch a cartoon film.
Stages were set up near the beach, where groups of musicians played music in their own individual style.
And of course we had another glorious sunset to enjoy from the park.
