Samoan Umu

This past weekend I went to our Nazarene Bible College with the Deuels, Pringles and Staci and we joined the Fakauas for a Samoan umu.  An umu is very similar to the PNG mumu, but it is done above ground, where a mumu is in a hole in the ground.  They both use rocks that are heated to cook the food.  Peni and Talisua had done a lot of work in the morning preparing the umu and cooking the taro, kaukau, taro leaves and chicken.  When we got there, we grilled up some steak, chicken and tuna and then had a feast.  After eating, we played games and had a lot of laughs.
