     Pago Pago (pronounced Pahngo Pahngo) is the capital city of American Samoa, a territory of the United States of America, where tourism, entertainment and tuna canning are the primary industries.

     We decided not to take the Cruise Critic tour to the east side of the island and to Lisa’s Barefoot Bar for lunch and a swim.  There was a nice market right off the ship with lots of stalls.

We then walked into the town and went to the Internet, $2. for 15 minutes each.  Not much time and they cut you off at the end.  Most places you pay when you finish.  There were other stores in the Fagatogo Square where Ray had a shirt made.   We went into the food store and picked up a few things.  They use the US dollar.  Everyone we met was very friendly.  The Park Rangers were onboard and gave talks.  We had lunch on the ship and all aboard was at 4:30 pm. 

     The entertainment tonight was very funny ventriloquist Jimmy Tamley.
