I've fallen behind here!

The first photo in the February 17th post is a classic! And I love the street sign. That sort of thing is one of my favorite photos to seek out when traveling.

Wow, lots of color there!

There's a building that might be a Greek Orthodox or similar church in a few of the shots, is that something famous or interesting?

Don't know how famous it is, but it's the EFKS Church (Ekalesia Faapotopotoga Kerisiano Samoa ), also known as the Congregational Christian Church in Samoa.

I didn't mention before, but the bat pictures are very cool! Never seen them out in daylight like that!

Looks like the Polynesian equivalent of a luau there....cooking stuff!

Those flying foxes are dormant during the day, but they roost in plain sight high up in the trees.  As for the Polynesian cookout, yes, it's basically a luau when you consider that both Hawai'i and Bora Bora were settled by the same peoples, the Polynesians.
