Samoa ramblings

 These photos are out of order, I have hit the wrong button somewhere!!! But it has taken so long to get them uploaded I am not going to change them!! This is part of the display cultural village in Apia just behind the information centre.

Here is my wonderful hubby displaying the latest in fashion to wear to a Pacific Island!!!! Not!!! We think he has strained his Achilles so has it braced to support it, so much for tennis playing!! Not healthy I have always said!! 

Now we are back at the cultural village

one of the fales you can look at - these used to be the main form of housing here, now they have more Western style houses in the north.

the main meeting fale, in the villages this is where the family meet and talk about what they need to talk about with the chief!

This is where I have been every day, rain or shine, no hail so far!!! Love the swimming pool!

and this is my little friend who came and sat with me and wanted lots of head scratches!

Our room,

same again but different view!!

the vies from the balcony one afternoon, it rained very heavily not long after this,

local foliage

this is all I managed for FNWF, sewed the arms of two flowers

we spent money with this happy man at the flea market today, he does carving for a living as does his son

back at the pool late afternoon and swimming in the rain!!
Happy days!
