MOOREA, TAHITIAN HOUSE, watercolor on Arches paper
Open houses, with decks and straw rooftops are common in Samoa and Tahiti. Just floor, wooden columns and the straw roof, no walls, are called "Fale", in the original language of the islands. They are perfect for a warm weather year-round, with occasional daily warm showers. That's why they hang the clothes under the roof-top. No insects or poisonous snakes, warm air and warm water, fruits and flowers all around you, what else do you want????? Paradise!!!!!
