Another lovely day in Samoa. We had a quiet morning on the boat doing
stuff and reading. I scrubbed the side of the boat! We took Jonah to the
movies in the afternoon - Shrek - very funny - he missed all the
inappropriate jokes but enjoyed the animation etc. A good family flick.
The town was dead today as it was Sunday - the only people around were at
the movie theater which was packed with families. Its kind of nice to have
Sunday so quiet as families tend to spend time with each other. Fa'Samoa
(traditional Samoa) is all about families and they mean extended families.
Everybody lives together in large groups, at night at six a bell rings and
they observer Sa' which is a half hour of quiet time for prayer. Everyone
just sits down and is quiet. They don't really do it in the city although
stores do close before that.
