Charge D’Affairs Visit


Robin Yaeger, me, host mother and grandchild, George (Robin's Assistant)

The top U.S. official in Samoa for the past six months is the Charge D’Affairs, Robin Yeager. She is a career diplomat in the Foreign Service responsible for a staff of 19 people and she reports to the U.S. Ambassador in Wellington, New Zealand. Robin is a gracious person opening her private residence to Peace Corps for the Election Returns, Thanksgiving, and Obama’s Inauguration. Her visit to my humble home and her treat of a restaurant meal helps to bring the U.S. a little closer to Savaii.

She sounds like a cool person and a friend to all the PVC. I read Matt's account of watching the inauguration at her house, and it sound like a much more memorable experience than what a lot of folks back here could achieve.
