Different Countries

Different  countries have different cultures. For example, some older japanese people wear kimonos, arrange flowers in vases and have tea ceremonies. My family is from Samoa.

Samoa is a nice cooling place to be at but in my  culture we do like anything there. Sometimes we do spearfishing in the shallow waters. At Samoa we do like swimming in the water and it is so clear to swim in.

Did you know that  at Samoa people there like to eat all kinds of food,  like chicken, shrimps, oysters and other kinds of food there.
