10 days and counting

In 10 days I'll be in Majuro! Never heard of Majuro? Majuro is in the Marshall Islands. Never heard of the Marshall Islands? Well, Godzilla is from the Marshall Islands (the most famous island in the Marshalls is Bikini.)

Majuro is an atoll; it has a very narrow circular strip of land surrounding a large lagoon. This will be my first visit, so I don't really know what to expect. According to the Internet, this is the airport:

I'm going with Jesse Borja and Reina Camacho to represent MINA at a Micronesians in Island Conservation Retreat. I'll be there from Monday to Saturday. I'm sure we'll be busy, but I'm going to do my best to get in at least one dive. Just one! Just so I can say I did it!

Speaking of Scuba, Mike Tripp has promised to start posting to his Saipan Scuba Diving Blog. He's got some pretty cool stuff on there, like pictures and underwater video.

It was raining when I was landing in Majuro last two summers ago. When I got off the plane it looked like the ocean was going to swallow the land!Buy me a flower when you're there, I'll give you the money at the meet up

Hey at least you will be able to get off the plane rather than sitting there for hours waiting for your conection to Hawaii thinking I've been on here long enought to walk over there, do a dive, have a beer and then get back on this sweat box.
I'm sure you'll have time for a dive or two.
Thanks for the plug for the blog. I will keep up my posts ol' wise one!
