Jeritilley A picture is worth a thousand words..

Photo of the Day Sunday 13th August 2012 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day…” ” When dreaming of the future, don’t let the present slip by.”

Down to the South Pacific for the photo, and to Samoa, which became independant from New Zealand in 1962.  New Zealand had taken over the islands (there are 7 main islands) from Germany in 1914.  About 195 000 people live in the islands, with Apia being the capital.  The main exports are coconuts, cocoa beans and bananas, but with tourism now becoming more important.   Robert Louis Stevenson is buried there.   The photo was taken in the bus station in Apia, and shows a typically crowded local bus.   Buses are slow and often overfull, but are colourful!!

Happy not to be working at the Quality Spa Resort Hotel in Norefjell.
