On the weekend we went from Pohnpei to Palau - twelve hours on the island hopper to Chuuk, Guam, Yap and then here! The flying's not too bad - although there were some whopper tropical storms - but I have never heard the words "TSA clearance" before I did this trip and I hope never to hear them again! What a pain.

Palau has a lot more tourists than FSM (mostly from Japan, Taiwan and China) and is apparently very beautiful and has fantastic diving. We have only seen the main town and the government offices and so far it's hard to get too excited because it has rained and rained. Every hour or two, real waterfall showers, so loud you have to stop talking because no-one can hear you. We didn't realise but there is a public holiday on Thursday so we will have a day off then and try and get someone to take us out for snorkelling and to look at some pretty fishes. Love floating about looking at pretty fishes...

  1. it just looks so beautiful and relaxing there! the color of the sky and the color of the water are magnificent. going to a tropical island sounds pretty good right about now, since it's 37 deg. F and raining here. supposed to turn to snow by tonight.
