We're saying our goodbye's to the U.S. Ambassador to Micronesia, Doria Rosen. She was here this past week to oversee the local election. She truly is a gem and it has been a great pleasure talking with her and getting to know her. It becomes difficult to separate from friends made while we've been here when we know that we may not ever see them again. Bill and Kiki Stinnett, also in the picture, are a couple of the movers and shakers on this island, they own and operate The Trukstop Hotel where we live.
This is the election polls for the outer islands in the State of Chuuk, that comprises all the islands in our Lagoon and about a dozen islands outside of the Lagoon. The people here in Chuuk are always moving around so this polling place is for those that are from another island but living here on this island.
