So now I'm looking forward to the new year and getting things underway here. I have a few options to explore in January before my primary job at the school starts. I also think I'll be doing some surfing and travelling to the other island. Having time on my hands leaves a lot of flexibility for the next five weeks.
Christmas here was quiet. Most families have a celebration during the day, drink a lot and go to Church. Christmas is less a day and more of a week-long thing for Samoans. I'll be heading out to the village soon to visit my host family and see how they're doing. Some other volunteers were out there, so I'm excited to see my host family as well. More to come later.
