True journal of many zany experiences during an interesting two years in the Samoan Islands as a teacher and temporary member of a Polynesian family, from a personal diary account. Personal development and reflections of what such a beautiful culture and its interesting people can teach a teacher, despite all intentions in the reverse order. Visit a truly idyllic setting, the South Pacific, with Mika, the responsible teacher, and Uncle Mikey, the colossal screw-up. At the same time, the main character tries to reconcile his two-year term there. A true story from the author's diary from 1978-80, warts and all.
