Coconut times

Re: Coconut truck 

I had to laugh when I saw the photo of M.E.S.C. vehicle in the paper. The question is what were they doing? And where was the driver heading to with the load of coconuts?

My answer will be that they might have been delivering coconuts to schools.

I think the school might have run out of money, pens and paper, so a mixture of old and new ways is in trial for today. 

They have stopped students from bringing the fafaga (food for lunch) for teachers, now they have to chew and eat coconuts. 

This is classic but so common in Samoa.
