The Baha'i House of Worship - Mother Temple of the Pacific Islands. This temple is one of only 8 Baha'i temples in the world - all nine sided and each very different.
Next stop, the Papapapai-Tai Falls - very dramatic - just don't get too close to the edge!
One of the best beaches we have been to anywhere - so soft and with a great view of the islands.
It would be a great place to spend the day relaxing in the Fales and snorkeling.
|Beautiful sandy beach|
Next, our driver took us to the Piula Cave Pool - a beautiful fresh water pool where you can explore the cave. Very refreshing!

You could easily tell you were in a new village when the colors changed.
|Flowers - not sure what it is|
The Samoan families live a very simple life, but are very proud of their homes and their villages.
Wonderful to see and a very busy day - we were pooped!
We have also been touring around Apia.

We enjoyed seeing how and where he and his family lived, plus our tour guide was quite a character!
The whole island is gearing up for the Tweila Festival that started Monday, so there is lots of activity.
|Fire Dancer - very fast!|
The competitors are judged by creativity, performance, speed, and other factors. And, of course, how often they drop the battans.
The top 5 from each group will compete at the Tweila Festival Tuesday night.
We are looking forward to seeing them, plus all of the other events.
It is going to be a very busy week.
Enjoy the rest of the pictures!
