The early part of the day was spent in final preparations for the travel to Yap.
Here are a few departure pictures:
Yvonne's Hotel. Everyone there was quite nice, helpful, and friendly. The hot showers were a treat.
This is BJ, a student and weekend waiter. Nice guy.
This little guy was around all of the time. He slept in the lobby at night and would sit on my lap as I wrote the blog. He was not, however, declawed.
This is Kia's, a nice restuarnat, good and good service. Had quite a few meals there over the course of the week.
Then it was a continuation of United Flight 154, with island hopping again through the Pacific. Here are a few pictures of scenes at the international airport:
Isn't the little girl in the pink dress precious?
The lady in the center has the most beautiful long hair, to the level of her knees.
The equivalent of a "No Smoking" are.
The first stop was Chuuk. A nice island that I could only visit outside of the departure area.
Many WWII Japanese ships were sunk in Chuuk lagoon. The map give a description of the ship and the diving opportunities to visit the wrecks.
The next stop was Guam, a large and very modern airport. It serves as a hub to many locations in the region and Asia and Australia. They had the same type of cows - a trend started in Chicago and made it's way around the world.

We arrived on the same plane as the Yapese dancers who just returned from shows in France. We were all met at the arrival area with a traditional greeting and flowers. Arrived at the EAS hotel at 10:45 PM, too late and too tired to explore.
This is Derrick and his cousin. He talked quite a bit on the ride frm Guam to Yap. Cute little guy.
