Houses on Tutuila Island

White House With Blue Trim

We always enjoy seeing the houses of the middle class every where we go. These are the houses that tell you how the people of the area actually live. The palaces of the wealthy are pretty, and pretty much the same around the world, and the hovels of the very poor are pretty much the same too. It's the middle class houses are the most interesting of the lot.
Blue House

The blue house is nestled in an abundant tropical garden.
Happily, we didn't see any houses that indicated the occupants were among the very poor here. The cars looked pretty nice too.

House with Fancy Porch

House With Fale

This fale was built in a rectangular shape instead of the traditional oval.
