His van was full, and as a bonus, I got a tour of some expensive hotels as he went around and picked up other clients.
Of course, most hotels here are expensive, so it's not like the people staying in them are particularly well-off. They just didn't find any other options when they were looking for a place to stay. I'd found my pension in Lonely Planet, and had chosen it over backpacker digs because it was in Papeete, and I'm a city-dweller who likes to walk or take buses.
Oh. Mr. "I'm Here to Buy A Yacht" was on the same tour.
