I'm just settling in and have discovered that the internet appears to be free here so I may post more pics, etc. from Kosrae as have unlimited use (at least from what I can tell now). Oh - and I just sat down on the bed to test it out - a water-bed?! Yes - I'll be sleeping in a traditional Micronesian hut in the trees in a water-bed - not bad if you ask me!
An update on the weather I mentioned last night. I thought it seemed a bit severe and apparently it was a waterspout tornado that literally ripped right through the resort. When I say resort - I'm talking the length is only maybe 50 yards. They were cleaning seaweed off of the TOP of the walls INSIDE of the lobby this morning! I thought it was a bit loud for just your normal storm - I guess I can now say I've lived through a tornado!
