Hi everyone, or should I say 'Ia Orana" the tahitian way... (or taehr mahalo!!!
Ia Orana (the Tahitian way to say "Hi!!") or should I say "Mahalo!!!

I'm a french architect. I've been living in Tahiti for a few years in a recent past. And finally came back to Paris, my hometown. I wrote a travel book for a french editor and i work now on a couple of projects, related to Polnbesia, a travel diary with hundreds of illustrations and photographs and an "anti-guide", in a way the bask side of the mirror, with humor and fun. 2 years in the earthen Paradise.....
We opened our blog
http://www.tahitiblues.blogspot.com and invite al of you to pay us a visit. It's still only in french but we have hundreds of ilustrations, and photographs, most of them about tikis, and marquesan taoo and sculpture. I have this passion for tikis and try to communicate it through our site.

"Na na" as they say for "good bye" in Tahiti.
In the hope to have the pleasure to have a visit from you all!!
Feel free to ask any questions about the polynesian life .....

Hi, everyone,

I'm workng on the english version of our site. But, with almost 300 photos and paintings, one can feel the "Tahitian spirit" without reading a line!! (at least, I suppose so!) But that's a promice, I'll write the english version ASAP!!

Welcome Stephane. I've met you a few years ago (2001 I think), bought your travel book, and saw your exhibition at RFO...

Stephane's art can also be seen (a small picture) on Tiki News 17, at the end.

Nicolas
