Jack is well and truly here. We have spent time looking at Samoa and its wonders. It has a few. To compensate for missing school we visited the Robert Louis Stevenson house and museum, we swum in a volcanic lava tube pool which was wild and we have had a Samoan feast which involved killing a pig amongst many other things. I won't go into it but both Jack and I have images in our minds that will be hard to forget.
The feast was great with very unusual foods and tastes. Jack got to see the full production. How to husk coconuts, how to make coconut milk, preparing taro and how to drown a pig then cook the lot on a stone based fire under mango leaves. The people are very friendly and kind and Jack has been very popular with the locals.
One downside is their bureaucracy which we have to through tomorrow prior to departure. An estimate is five hours. Oh well. Looking forward to the sail and I shouldn't complain about officials here, I spent a couple of hours filling in forms for our arrival in Fiji which is apparently stricter again.
Lots more to tell but Jack is playing some great guitar so I think I'll just enjoy that for a while.
