Tahiti Week 4: Coconut Day, Last Hike and Surf Competition!
by Veronica Sedano (written on August 19)
Our last week in Tahiti consisted of variety of activities. We dedicated a whole day to learning about coconuts. Coconuts are used in every way possible here, they are used to start a fire, to eat, for body/hair products, you name it.
We then took our last hike! We drove to the site, which was 2 hours away and hiked for what was seemed to be 30 minutes, but it was all worth it because we were able to swim in this gorgeous waterfall.
Lastly, we were able to go to a surf competition that is hosted in Tahiti. It was our little fun adventure of the week!
