There is a slight glitch. On the last day of vacation I realized I'd lost my camera in New Zealand. Luckily, I figured out it may have fallen out of my purse in the rental car. The nice folks at Budget found it and are mailing it back to me. Sadly, it seems that the New Zealand postal service, like the US Postal Service, is unaware of the difference between Somalia and Samoa. Clearly the entire world needs more geography training.
These photos were taken when my friend D and I enjoyed my village and the sights around Savaii.
|Donna and our guide at the lava fields. They were standing inside the church whose outer walls survived the lava flow in the early 1900's.|
|We saw sea turtles. Back home, my brother said he's seen a lot lately in our lagoon. I thought I saw a huge one yesterday then realized it was a spear fisherman.|
|I didn't know the Bon Jovi bus came to Savaii - I thought there was only one in Upolu.|
|View from the dining room at Le Lagoto where I had the fabulous pizza from Sekia Pizza.|
|View of my room at Va i Moana in Asau. That's an outdoor shower on the left. The deck goes out over the water.|
|View of my fale deck when tide was out. Taken from a boat.|
|This guy was remarkable. Talk about service. He did it all - bartender, waiter, busboy, entertainer (he's playing the ukelele in the photo above) and tour guide when we took the two hour boat/snorkel trip. That cost $10 USD.|
