A Moment of Visual Stimulation

Below are several pictures of my home during training.

My Bed: My fabulous sleeping nook is located in the family's living room where about three other people sleep at night, including my sisters. Privacy is not a luxury that Samoans commonly enjoy. Houses are not compartmentalized - everything is shared and everything is known. If you like to esat rice, someone across the village will know. If you tripped and fell on a rock, people will know. If you defecated, they'll know.

The view from my bedroom window.
