Photohunt: Sports Kirkiti

This year is Samoa's 50th birthday.

I was very curious about this game Kirikiti which looks like a cross between baseball and cricket. I went closer, and the players were very happy for me to take their photos. I ask my Samoan students. They say it is very popular and they play here in uckland as church groups. They wear their lavalava,when they play. Both men and women wear their lavalava akin to the Thai and Malaysian sarongs. Only they wear them shorter.
