Who and where John Rother of St. Charles, showing his Blues spirit in front of a Tahiti welcome sign at the airport in Papeete.

The trip • He was heading to a live-aboard ship for a dive adventure in the Cook Islands, located between French Polynesia and Tonga.

Travel tip • Every night, except Monday, starting around 6 p.m., food trucks pull up to the Place Vai’ete, a small park just across from the ships’ docking location in downtown Papeete. It’s a great place to mingle with the locals and enjoy great food and local entertainment.
