11 June 2011 (-1 in time zone):

View of Tutuila through the trees from Aunu'u. Peter showed me his traditional tatau (the origin of the word "tattoo") after I asked. He bragged that he holds the record here for finishing his in only three days. The process can go on for up to two weeks if the man cannot endure the pain.
