We have 2 days here on Bora Bora, after a day at sea traveling from the Cook Islands back to the Society Islands of French Polynesia, shown here. Bora Bora is surrounded by a large reef, enclosing the island and a beautiful lagoon. Notice there is only one place that a ship can enter the lagoon. We are anchored just off Vaitape, and take a tender to the town. These kids were have a great time getting their outrigger canoes into the wake of the tender and getting a free ride. They were here…

For Polynesian nations, cooking in earth ovens is as typical as Czechs hanging half a kilogram of bacon in a smokehouse. Samoa is no exception. The method of preparation doesn’t differ much from island to island, but the Samoans assert with convincing certainty that their umu is the best. It combines crispiness and juiciness perfectly, with the characteristic smoky aroma of umu - - Samoa | Samoan Cuisine | Polynesian Cuisine | Samoan Food | Polynesian Food | Earth Oven Bacon, Foods, Cooking, Tattoos, Samoan Food, Island Food, Polynesian Food, Food Preparation, Food
