Apia, Independant Samoa

The preparations for the South Pacific Games here in Independant Samoa are at a frenzied pace.  The opening ceremonies are Saturday night and the bay is filling up with boats from all over arrived for the games.  A large ship brought about 400 people (7 busloads) from Tuvalu and we read that the Tokelau team is all here for the games.  This is probably the closest we'll come to being near an Olympic Games and it's fun to see all the fanfare.
The radio wiring is all fixed and we're up and running again.  The tin can of a generator we got in Pago Pago has now revealed some of it's secrets to Peter and our batteries are charged up.  We've done some tourist trips around town here and are looking forward to heading to Niuatoputapu, Tonga on Monday.
Today is Toni's birthday (Peter's Mom) and we're thinking of her today and celebrating her birthday from afar.

Hi, guys
Just wanted you to know how much Cindi and I enjoy your blog. We've been following all along, but don't have your email address to contact you.

Interesting to read your account of PagoPago. We were there around 20 years ago, sounds like nothing's changed! Enjoy Tonga...we loved it. Wonder if Eleanor and Matoto are still around Vava'u...they were friends to many cruisers, and put on great feasts!!!

Cheers
Adam (s/v 'Bravo')
