Election from Afar


The United States has elected a new president on a ticket of hope and optimism against a backdrop of being assassination material. This was the opinion of several Peace Corps Volunteers who went to the home of the U.S. Charge d’Affairs stationed in Apia to eat, drink, and watch the election returns. I missed that election drama, choosing instead to make papaya jam and attempting again to find ways villagers can make a little extra money. It was drama enough for me.
