Buses of Savaii


Nothing gives you a better feel for Samoan life than riding on one of these colorful Savaii buses. One the bus here is always room for one more person. There is a movement of people and an hierarchy of who sits where or on whose lap. The music blasts to rap and religious songs.The buses stop when you want to get off and pick you up wherever you may be standing. The drivers waive to me or sound a blast on the air horns as we recognize each other. It is Fa'asamoa at its finest.

Bus departing from the wharf, as if the start of a race.
