Home of Robert Louis Stevenson: Apia,Samoa

I did not know that Stevenson spent the last 4 years of his life on Samoa. The climate was good for his lungs and the people touched his heart. Not hard to understand the latter. Some of the warmest and good humored folks on the planet I dare say. Beautiful smiles, easy laughs and deeply traditional. An island were tattoos recount the family history and children wait on their parents while growing up. Not bad.
