If Fare is sleepy, then Faaie—on the east coast about 2 mi south of Maeva—is in a coma. It only wakes when a tour group or individuals stop to the see the blue-eye eels that live in the river. The eels' favorite dish is tinned mackerel and the constant feeding over the years has turned them into little pets—most tour operators include this on a round-island tour. Beyond the eels, there's a small church and corner store and once you go over the Belvedere hill towards
the bridge, there's a town hall and primary school (both painted apricot).
