Got A Real Bad Case Of Channel Fever


Bora Bora, Michner's pearl of the pacific...

The major problem with Bora today is the fact that greed has run totally amok.. Too many hotels, too little roads, and too much modernization.. Water used to come from wells, but as in all pacific Islands the fresh water floats on top of the salt water underneath the island and with more use the sea water moves up to take the place of the fresh water that has been removed..

That fresh water lens is now broken, and all water on Bora that is potable is done by reverse osmosis plants on the island... Ain't Progress Wonderful???
