9 June 2011 (-1 in time zone):

Before going to the Museum of Samoa, I asked people if the museum is big and worth visiting. They told me it was very large. I beg to differ. Notice the painted tires. A local told me that Samoans "love to paint rocks" and other things as decorations. Many roads are lined with white-painted rocks. That person, a leader in a tourism association, is trying to get more people to plant plants instead of painting rocks.
