Back in Apia
Posted by Igor Popstefanija on October 28, 2008
So we spent a week in the village, but it feels more like a month. My host family is great. Check out the pictures below.
This week I’ll be shadowing a current volunteer, so I’ll get some kind of idea of what I’ll be doing for the next two years. I’m kind of excited about it. I’m still living out of a suitcase and back and forth from the village and town, so I don’t think its a good idea to send any packages yet. Also peanut butter is availible in apia. I think its more likely that’ll need some reading material (scifi books) and dvds (religerous when it comes out maybe).
Food wise, my family kept me away from too much fish. I did try some oka though, which is raw fish marinated in coconut juices. It was pretty tasty. I also had eel, wich tasted like fish. Mostly though it was taro and fried chicken. Taro is kinda like a potato, but I like it way better. We went to the planation where my samoan family grows the taro on saturday, it was a great experience.
