Samoa lesson #2 - How you doing?

I found a great treat that I ate all the time in Jamaica, the finger bananas.  We buy them in a big bunch, they are about three to four inches and the absolutely best banana to eat.  You can use this word for bananas --
misi luki (Mi see lu key) = banana

Every family has a falioo, what we call a pavilion, in the front of their home.  Some homes have several - one for cooking, one for sleeping and family meetings.
falioo - (Fa lee) = pavilion
Here we are in a fali at the Culture Center

These are words the grandkids can use every day:
Ioe (Ee-oh-e) = Yes

Leai (Le-ai) = No
