Opening of SPG 2007 !

Kava - and fun - in the Gym while we waited !
Kaitinano and team waiting on the road.

SPECTACULAR - we think !

While the public and VIPs were enjoying the Samoan culture, etc. in the Apia Park Stadium, the athletes and officials spent some time attending a Kava ceremony in the nearby Gymnasium.    Then to fill in time, we were moved outside to wait for more than an hour on the road OUTSIDE THE STADIUM, unable to see the enjoyable proceedings inside !    Once inside, insensitively long speeches prolonged the agony.   We also had the bizarre sight of a lone male, dressed to look like Jesus, dragging a heavy cross slowly for a complete lap of the track.   Later an enormous sea serpent (part of a story line) did the same.   None of this was explained !

We are sure it made good TV !
