Red Eye

I just jumped off the mini-island hopper from Palau, Yap, and on to Guam. I've written about the Continental Island Hopper in the past, the string of flights that bounces across Micronesia from Guam to Honolulu. My flight this morning wasn't part of the hopper per se, but it did stop in Yap, and half the plane had to deplane to allow for cleaning.

When they reboarded the plane many of the Yapese people boarding for Guam were wearing flowers on their heads and around their necks. Nothing like the smell of ylang ylang to remind you of home. It is good to be in the islands again.
