Manuia Le Aso (Good Afternoon) from Apia!

We have had some great adventures so far! Last night in Apia was our first hot water shower since we left June 29 and really our first bed with a frame. We have been staying in fales (thatched palm frond sides to an open oval “building” with a mat on the floor with a woven mat of palm fronds with a bathroom about 100 steps away). I missed the view of the ocean and the sounds of the waves last night. The matafaga (beaches) and the colors of the ocean have been some of the most gorgeous we have seen. Photos and video to be posted when we can as we have had limited electricity and internet access.

We have been to both Savai’i and Upolu (the two main islands) we may go to Lalomanu and Manono Island next (no cars) or fly to American Samoa for a few days. On the 22nd we fly to Fiji and then Tonga to see the whales.

We are off to the Marine reserve here in Apia for high tide and great snorkeling. We went to a place in Savai’i that sees the final sunset of the world…just at the edge of the international date line…soon Samoa will MOVE to the other side of the date line so they will not be just at the edge of tomorrow.
