Cyclist on the beach at Manase
Tanu family do a show every Saturday night
There are a few steep hills and can get rather hot in the middle of the day - but we found it no problem what so ever!
And you do get some awesome downhills!
Friendly firemen (friendly everyone actually)
Tree walk at Falealupo Rain Forest
Sunset at Falealupe watching the sun set in the last place on earth
(which is no longer because they recently moved the dateline!)
Cycling around Cape Mulinuu, was a bit tough with my thin wheels.
The Dutch don't do hills very well
We were given morning tea by a road working gang
We dropped in on Tufutafoe Primary School (unscheduled!).
They showed us through each class room and every child had to introduce themselves
The headmaster of Tufutafoe Primary School gave us lunch and organised an assembly of the students where they sang us songs.
We then sang for them!
A motto that rings true for cycle tourists too!
Goodbye Tufutafoe Primary School, we'll be back to see you again one day soon :-)
Friendly people, almost everybody waves. We got tired arms from waving so much
(and tired faces from smiling all the time!)
Samoan women playing volleyball in the evening
Lovely kids (in every village) always wanted say "Malo" and wave to us
Supposedly our accommodation had sea views!
And it was tidy pretty much every where.
Blow holes at Alofaaga
(be sure to buy an ice cream at the store in Taga)
