American Samoa snapshots...aka I'm allowed to be a tourist for a while

20 girls. 2 classrooms. 3 showers. We're getting extra close here in AmSam.

 
 The sun goes down at 6 p.m. here. Head lamps are a must if you don't want to stub your toe. 

  This will be my home in 2 weeks! And look, they're fixing the roof!

Woop woop - go LIONS!

 
 This view is a very short walk from my soon-to-be house. I'm not complaining one bit.

 The 'aiga (ai-ing-ah) bus (buses are owned by families here - 'aiga means family) overheated and stalled on a mountain top. What a tough life here in AmSam.

I hiked to Blunt's Point today. Just to my left is a huge cannon which protected the harbor during WWII.
