9 June 2011 (-1 in time zone):

Yet another view of the clock tower. Note the red bus on the right. Typical buses in Samoa are run privately, with intricately carved, painted, and decorated wooden frames and benches. They are ridiculously cheap and I don't know how they make up their fuel costs. Also, they blast upbeat tss-tss-tss sounding Samoan pop songs at all times!
