Postcard showing Hotel Bora Bora (which apparently is no longer in operation), and a still relatively undeveloped island, postmarked Aug 8, 1968, Bora Bora. Sent by my mom. Stamp is Scott#229, issued July 7, 1967. In case you can't read her writing: "We're having a wonderful time - it's just unbelievably beautiful. Like some other world. Miss everyone, but enjoying this too - it really is a paradise & still very primitive also, but probably not for long." Hotel Bora Bora was one of the early hotels on the island, built in 1961. When we were there, it consisted of 18 rustic thatch-roofed bungalows arranged along the beach, and a central larger building where food was served.
