RE: Why Amaile??
Hi! Burbank, CA? You really, or you admit to, claim to come from the first hell-hole of California?! We knew, in Alhambra, when the winds were shifting coz someone flushed the terlet in downtown Boibank - hehe!
Seriously though...thanks! for the article re Amaile, Upolu, Samoa. Home of my ancestors. I'll have to visit one day soon. I paid a summer visit to American Samoa and couldn't get off that rock fast enough. Now I understand why "The Rock" doesn't go by that appellation any longer.
Seems before any "palagi" or toilet tissue or anyone with any sense traversed to the islands, Samoans used "rocks" to clean their cute little fannys - Ouch! And so..."We don't smell what The Rock is cookin'" anymore - heh?
Did you really set foot on Amaile? Is it really like 200 years ago? How glorious if it is!
I was just joking 'bout your hometown and hope I was able to make your day - . I, too, live in Cali but up north, where the air is much fresher. Hope you can share yer adventures again. Oh, I know and neva eat the food - is that what they call it? Yuck!
