Talking late into the night and braiding one another's hair are two important social activities around here.

Every so often the sky serves up a delight, such as this ice bow around the moon.

New to Micronesia is a lace that shines like gold in the sun.  This lace is sometimes called "fourteen caret" lace.  The lace first appeared out here in Chuuk, available from a single store.  In late 1999 a store on Pohnpei owned by a Chuukese began supplying the lace to Pohnpei.  During Christmas 1999 many returning Kosraens brought dresses with the lace as gifts, and so now the lace can be seen on Kosrae as well.
