comment What are Samoan roadside stands selling in white styrofoam cups?
That second picture is totally what it was! You can see the contents are black in my first picture, but not as clearly as I did when I drove past the woman holding a box of them. That even shows the "something white" in the middle. Can you tell me more about koko Samoa?

comment Taking everyday medicine to Australia - do I need documentation for these?
you can get a doctor note for non prescription meds - i did so for Sudafed because New Zealand claimed to need one, though in the event they didn't ask for it. Just tick yes to the question and for good measure circle "medicine" - see transpacifictrip.wordpress.com/2015/07/20/landing-card-tip for example

comment I am usually delayed at the Canadian border. What can be done?
In America you solve this problem by (once) obtaining a redress number. That might be a useful term in a search about the problem.

comment Can I get a discount on my flight for not being overweight?
I have been weighed before flying several times now. On Fiji Link (the small regional division of Fiji Airways that flies to little islands) and on a private tour company. (The private company also requested our weights in advance,) However nothing seemed to be done with the information, We thought it might have been weight and balance,

comment Sweets as gifts in lands untouched by modern dentistry
@AndrewGrimm fair enough, I believe most tourist advice about candy is referring to dispensing it to random children you see on the street. If you want to bring a box of it as a gift to your hosts I think that's entirely different and less of an issue. I certainly assumed that handfuls to random kids is what you were referring to, but it's true you don't mention that at all - I just assumed.

comment Which currency for play money?
You might try this on lifehacks.stackexchange.com - it's a place for asking off-the-wall questions and solving things unusually. I think using real currency to sub for play money might qualify.
