Tracking my Peace Corps Adventures in Western Samoa

Photo Tour – Malua and Saleimoa

Posted by Igor Popstefanija on August 8, 2009

Well it’s been a pretty boring couple of weeks what with school out and me with nothing much to do. I had been planning this (and other) photo tours for a while and I was bored one afternoon. So in the other direction from Utuali’i are Malua and Saleimoa. The good thing about Saleimoa is that it includes one of the few supermarkets in Samoa outside of Apia, but this supermarket is not in walking distance so I usually take the bike that Peace Corps provides all volunteers. I make this trek about once a week, in order to replenish supplies that I cannot buy in Utuali’i.

Malua is home to the Malua Theological College, which was one of the first places the Missionaries, from the London Missionary Society, set up shop in Samoa, and was there to educate the locals to be pastors. It is home to one of the oldest Churches in Samoan, built in the 1830s (though you can’t see it from the road.) There is also a really cool pond there that is home to Sea Turtles. Anyway, the pictures speak for themselves, so here goes:
