Anyway we seen a lot of churches and the samoan governers house which was turned into a museum, his wife must still lives their as she was showing us through the house
It wasn’t until it was pointed out to me that I realised this was one of the places that was affected by the tsunami 2 yrs ago even the island yesterday was affected but they have clean it up so much you cant really tell unless you are really looking for it. Although once it was pointed out to me I then seen it. There is still rubbish being washed up on shore from other places, like computers etc. And buildings that look like they could have been fix up but obviously not able to as they haven’t done anything with them.
We went up to turtle and shark bay, we are standing on the volcanic rocks and the samoans are singing and the turtles come up as well as sharks but you cant point at them as it is bad luck, it was lovely to see the coast line as it is all in its natural state not a lot of readjusting has been done, which is great.
Then its back to the ship, and the markets lol and there was a lot of them here. As we were leaving the docks this afternoon 2 of the ladies gave a dancing demo was lovely to see. They are very graceful people and so happy. We can have a sleep in tomorrow at last. J poor kids have been getting up nearly every morning around 6am which is 3am your time aussie time that is.
