  1. Wow Sam, these are incredible! I WANT to visit! I've had a stupid long-standing cold for a while and my doctor said the only prescription he could think of was a ticket to a balmy, warm place.

    Samoa's balmy and warm.

    You think health insurance covers a trans-oceanic flight?

    I miss you, and I want to shake your tree.
