Tutuila Homes for Saletutuila houses for sale
For many years Catherine has been living in American Samoa and lives once a year in our resort to give lessons in arts and show new works until she can come back to work. She' s painting from photos and writing tales about her journeys. In Search of a Familiar Soul about her experiences in American Samoa was released in June 2010 in the Anthologie Female Nomad and Friends.
The majority of the photos on our website were taken by Catherine during her time at Sadie's. Sadie's Gift Shop sells her originals and gicleés on linen, as well as greetings card and postcard images and canvases.
Il Pago Pago, Tutuila Island, United States Samoa
So far I had only been reading about it in the Somerset-Maugham brief history book in the port of Pago Pago, on the Isle of Tutuila in American Samoa. Sadie Thompson Inn, which is said to be an improved copy of the "House of Entertainment" Sadie ran for US Sailors on Pago Pago at the beginning of the twentieth century, is still lively and great, but not as a whorehouse, but as a hospital.
As we left the ship, the pouring rains started, so we protected ourselves at the Goat Iceland Café (part of Sadie's by the sea) until it was over. Rainbows were forming in the shade of Rainmaker Mountain over the cove, and fruiting mice screamed over the islands, making the islands almost ageless.
However, our times cannot stop forever, and so we went in vain along the harbor front before we took one of the natives on their trip around the islands in their familybus, which they themselves had rebuilt with timber and plexiglass. Before we stopped at the beautiful Tisa's Barefoot Bar, which was led by some of our guide's friend, who barbeque in their bar.
During the barbecue we also realized that some of the kids had westerly reputations like Flora and Valerie, but later on the coach we were informed that Samoan kids were often called after the storms that were blown in the year they were given birth, which I thought was a very strange lycee.
Tinned-tunafood factories used to be a big deal in Samoa, but all but one withdrew when the US minimal wages were eventually paid to the population in 2009. US connection to Samoa is not entirely clear; while those from Samoa are US Americans, they are not US Americans and have no voting rights, but they are permitted to struggle (in a typically British way ) and over 10 Samoans from the USA were killed in the Iraq conflict.
Our host families left us at the shore before picking up their schoolchildren. That part of the cove had a look at Rainmaker Mountain (and not at McDonald's) and swimming was a fresh end for our short'through the keyhole' look at this lovely isle.
The next morning we looked forward to visit Samoa to see if there were many distinctions between American Samoa and its neighbor, who had regained his independency in 1962.
