It turns out that Tahiti is very close to the Marquesas, where they had the last Survivor. Anyway, a highlight of the trip was finding this one restaurant that served Fafaru, the disgusting dish that served as the eating challenge last season. When I ordered it, the waiter tried to dissuade me, saying, “You don’t want that.” But I persisted.
They brought it out tightly wrapped in plastic wrap so the smell wouldn’t escape. Anyway, it smells strongly of a combination between sewage and fart. And it tastes like it smells. I could barely get a tiny piece down. It was a highlight of the trip.
