Pago Pago (pronounced Pango Pango)

Today we had a wonderful 3 hour (4 hour island time) tour of American Samoa. It was a very special adventure. Our tour guide David, was a little light in the sandals but he provided us with a unique view of the myths and culture of Samoans.

We stopped at a number of nature venues and also visited the official mansion of the prior Governor of the Island and the local art gallery/museum. The orchid paintings were phenomenal. We also saw spathiglottis growing naturally. What a special treat for any orchid enthusiast. Tomorrow we have another day at sea and then Fiji.

Roak mentioned that we save the tops from cans and now 3 bars are saving them for us. We expect that when we get off the ship in another 2 weeks we will have quite a collection all going to Taylor. TTYL.
