    The dawn of each day in Bora Bora is a welcome.  You can hardly  believe you're waking up in a place so beautiful and there's no telling what the day might hold!   Who saw morning before you?  The people of Lima, Peru, which lies 5,000 miles nearly due east.  The vastness of the Pacific makes Bora Bora a highly remote destination.
