Wow, I gotta go to Portugal now! Used to live in LA and frequented Tiki Ti and now in Gothenburg, Sweden. Got Kon-Tiki here, but man.. it ain't no Tiki Ti!

Heading to Lisbon next week, and will lead a group of intrepid explorers to Bora-Bora.
Any requests for photos of anything, mysteries to solve, etc?

Hey Sven, Bigbrotiki the original render drawing that you posted here is an image I sent you privately for The book proyect we had. Why you post it and where is my credit? or The artist's?

I am sorry. I was just amazed and joyful about how much the actual bar resembled the rendering, and wanted to share that. And if you don't want me to show that, why would you want me to divulge the name of the original artist? That key figure is clearly your domain.
And I am very sad too to hear about the closing of the Madrid Bora Bora. The Lisbon Tangaroa had all its ceramic art removed when they sold it, only half a year I got to photograph it

As most of Iberian good-looking tiki-bars from seventies they all have very lousy cheap-tasting juicy drinks nowadays, but from all of them I guess the worst ones I got from Bora-Bora. Blackberry syrup offered as Dr. Funk and the out-of-menu no. 13 secret drink (on the photo in the green mug) that had to be strong... was... just strong, not good, something like little bit dissolved rum, no any balance nor anything. Great history, zero present.
