Photo Tour – Utuali’i

Posted by Igor Popstefanija on June 13, 2009

So Utuali’i is the closet village to where I live, and tends to be where I go to buy my bread and coke. All the children in the village used to yell “bye bye palagi” when I would walk through, but then I confronted one of them and told them that my name was “Toa” and not “Palagi” so now they alternate between “Toa” and “Palagi.” Most of the people in the village know me by sight, but I’ve only had real conversations with the shopkeepers. There are three shops (faleoloa in samoan) in the village. The one pictured is the one I go to the most, because the woman who runs the shop is originally from hawaii. Anyway, hope you enjoy the pictures:
