Fagatogo Market

Passengers from all around Tutuila tumble out of brightly painted buses in the bus station next to the market, and it's great fun to sit on a bench and watch the comings and goings. Nearby, Samoans stand behind heaps of fruit and vegetables, waiting for someone to show an interest. If it's Saturday morning, an agitated evangelist may be trying to get their attention with fire and brimstone to the accompaniment of shrill gospel music.
