Pu'a'a i le pasi (Pig on the bus)

I just want it documented that there was a pig on my bus today. I live just outside the main town area and not in the faraway village area, but today I shared the bus with a pig inside a rice sack. The young man who brought him onto the bus dropped off the rice sack next to the bus driver in the front of the bus and then went to sit in the back of the bus as where, young Samoan boys are to sit. I was amused for the duration of the bus ride to the market watching the pig squirm and try to escape his containment to no avail. I thought to myself, "I absolutely must write about this".
