I woke up this morning with the rotund wonder of weird food, Andrew Zimmern on the tube. I sometimes love the show and other times it just falls flat to me. This morning Bizarre Food’s program was about Samoa. Samoa will always have a place in my heart for its beauty and the friendliness of the people. Sadly it was also the first time I’ve seen the damage a tsunami can do in real life and not on a screen. It also was the last trip I took before finding out I had throat cancer, I knew that the test results would be waiting for me when I got home but some how I put it out of my mind, I knew deep inside the results anyway. It is a tribute to Samoa that it was so amazing that I was able to put it out of my mind, a tribute to Samoa. My Samoan Article.
