American Samoa Pictures

American Samoa (
maps) was the forth country/territory I visited on my Pacific Islands trip. My visit was from the 24th of June 2000 to the 11th of July 2000 (I returned one more time for only three days). I always stayed with a Samoan family at home in Fagaima, Tafuna. I was not really interested in any tourist activities, but I always tried to adapt to the local lifestyles as much as possible. During my visit to American Samoa, I only visited the main island of Tutuila (map). (read more...)
