Rangiroa: Decorating churches with local materials
Because of my love affair with the water in Rangiroa, I feel compelled to include a water shot in every post. This is the water in front of the abandoned church we visited.
Beautiful shell necklaces and palm frond weavings adorned the statues inside. And a religious text in Tahitian.
Next we walked by the church in the main village of Avatoru which was decorated loud and proud with black pearl shells. Love it.
