My user name, "Maruru" means "Thank You" in Tahitian. It's one of many words I learned and used during my visit to Tahiti in 2005. I always make a point to learn at least a few words in the local languages of the places I visit. I find it's a great way to connect with locals. A smile, an open mind, and the willingness to learn goes a long way in breaking down the language barrier, and serving as a positive ambassador for your country.
