|Wayne's birthday hat and shirt from|
Papeete Tahiti's Hinano clearance store.
For every rule there's an exception.
Still, I was surprised when Wayne asked me for a Hinano t-shirt for his birthday.
Cool and refereshing, Hinano is the sole locally brewed beer in French Polynesia. There are other beers sold; Heinken the most prevalent.
There wasn't much in his sizein t-shirts at the store, and what there was wasn't suitable. The Papeete Tahiti Hinano store is a clearance shop; no returns. Instead, Wayne got a button-down shirt and hat. He was a a happy birthday boy.

By the time this posts we expect to be on our way to Tonga with a stop in American Samoa and potentially Cook's Suwarrow on the way. Will set several catch-up blog posts to run while we're on passage, internet permitting. When in Tahiti we stayed primarily at the city marina in Papeete (S17.32.393 W149.34.219).
