Island Man

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 12 February 2019 in Lifestyle & Culture.

In the spirit of Silly Tuesday...
This young man was working in a day-trip kiosk on the beach, but when he was not busy, he played and sang to himself. He sang a fun little song for me.

*In January, 2013 I got to go on my bucket list dream trip to the French Polynesian Islands of Tahiti, Moorea, and Bora Bora. Some photos were posted here on Aminus3 at that time, but there are so many more that I never got to.

This LONG series will end with the island of Tahiti, the largest of the islands that make up French Polynesia.

Does it have 8 strings ? It is not an ukulele. I wish I could hear his music.

such an intriguing instrument

i'm guessing they're hand made by a local, perhaps?

nice portrait

@sherri: Thanks. That would be my guess, but I don't know for sure.

A wonderful portrait. I like the instrument that he is playing. It sort of resembles a ukulele.
