Tracking my Peace Corps Adventures in Western Samoa

In Memorium

Posted by Igor Popstefanija on October 2, 2009

I wanted to take this post to reflect on the events that have effected Samoa this week. I noticed that the traffic to my website has jumped up, so I feel the need to reassure everyone that I am alright. The area of Samoa, where I live was unaffected by the earthquake and tsunami, and so I consider myself very lucky. People on the southeast coast of the island of Upolu were not so lucky. I have not been to see the devestation firsthand, but I have seen footage on Samoan TV. My best wishes and condolences go out to the victims of this tradegy.

    I’m glad you were OK. Just wondering where you are in Samoa. We spent time at Stevenson’s in Manase and I wonder if it was on a safe part of the island.

    Thanks, Joan

    Yea, Manase is fine, the tsunami hit the south of the islands, and Manase is on the north coast.
