I lived in Bora Bora with my family for a year in 1981-2. We lived in Point Matira in a thatch roof house right on the beach. At the time there were only 2,600 people living on the island. It was agreat expirience for all of us. Made wonderful friendships with the locals. We also met very interesting people who were there visiting.
