|Our bus tour of Papeete, Tahiti -- the principal city of French Polynesia -- went past a great deal of street art.|
Among the many traditional island symbols in the design, you can see a little international radiation symbol on the sleeping girl's back, and just above her knees you can see a mushroom cloud. As I've written, the French conducted nuclear tests there from 1966 to 1996, which polluted the islands with radioactive fallout.
|We saw all sorts of street art, from carefully painted murals and advertisements to crude spray-painted graffiti.|
All this art seems to have become a part of the culture of this remote island, which I find fascinating.
