Well. If you speak french, you know that Allez means GO. And if you speak
tahitian, you'd know that Nana is Goodbye.

Last year, when people here said Allez to us, we kinda thought they were
telling us to go. Good bye. Good riddance. We were a bit taken aback.

But, I'm happy to report that it is also a friendly way of saying goodbye.
More and more, we've noticed people say to us "Allez, nana". By our very
astute cultural intuition, we figure that they can't all hate it
must be friendly!!

(Even more proof that our translaters are welcome to arrive at any time).
