In SIX WEEKS, Dave and I will be meeting the rest of our cohort in Los Angeles before flying off to Samoa. It’s about time – we’ve been looking forward to it since the day last March when our Peace Corps Placement Officer asked us if we would be interested in a placement in the South Pacific Islands. I told Dave we shouldn’t spread the word around until it was certain – which he agreed to. Of course, as soon as I hung up the phone I emailed, called, and texted everyone I could think of.
A few weeks ago, we watched a movie called Samoan Wedding – about four guys who are told to shape up or risk being banned from all wedding parties in the future. It’s available on Netflix Watch Instantly if you’re interested. I learned more about Kiwi culture than Samoan culture, but there was a tiny bit of Samoan dialogue – and the most HILARIOUS wannabe white gangster character ever. It’s worth watching just for that.
