8 June 2011:

Flying between pockets of civilization in a ocean of emptiness. Kind of like travelling through space between planets, I imagine. It's interesting that by the end of the trip, I will have visited nearly every labelled place on this map. This is the Samoan entry form - I found Samoan to the be most exotic-sounding language and had very strange place names. To read Samoan correctly, replace "g" with "ng." For example, Pago Pago is pronounced "pahng-o pahng-o."
