I enjoyed my one night stay at Dave's Eco-Lodge. Everyone was very friendly and solicitous. I like the informality and homeyness of the lodge. My room was basic in the older section but I had a wonderful view of Apia at night. In the morning I got to drive into Apia with the owner. I had dinner and breakfast here; they were very good, but huge portions!

We were meeting at Loretta's shop at 11 as she had a van which would transport all of us (Steve and I, Richard and Ita, Susana, Leilua and Loretta) for a trip around the eastern end of the island.
We set out over the Cross-Island Rd. Again, as we got higher up, ...
Dave Porter drove their van. Hmmm, maybe it wasn't THE Dave Porter, but it was the owner. I think they went after more propane but he gave me a running commentary as we drove down the mountain into the center of Apia - about 6 miles. He wondered if this was the route we took to get to his place - which he said was a bit closer to the airport than Apia itself (25 miles away). I told him we went past the rich people's houses and ...
