I just want to say hello to Rich Carlson, and also to say that I was happy to read all that he was telling about Polowat. I am a native of that island, and now residing in Guam. I have been in Guam for so many years. The last time I was visiting my island was in Dec. 1997 to Aug.1998. Reading what Mr.Carlosn was posting in here really put a smile to my face, especially about his dog being eaten up for his farewell party. I wish I could see some more picture of my island in here.

Hey Urumar ! I searched and could not find you on the PC global email listing and so here goes. I couldn't find you at graduation and wanted so much to thank you for your kindness and time during training in DC. It was a pleasure to have met and gotten to know you and hope to meet you again one day when I can prepare some urumar for you and Nancy. You are probably in Lesotho settling in and so I wish you the best in your new home there. I would also like to remind you that you always have a home in Micronesia. :) Take care and hugs from URUMAR... I am listed on the PC global. Bye for now and hope to receive word from you one day.

Hello Rich,

It has been long time since we've been in contact, but I think of you often, and hope that you and Nancy are well. You have been a great friend and mentor to me. Although I miss you, I'm glad that a small part of the rest of the world is getting to experience a little bit of "Rich". I hope that fate will allow me the opportunity to see you some day soon and hear the stories from this chapter in your life!

Hi Rich. I was online just searching for puluwat stories, and I came across your picture with some kids. I know the one wearing brown lava-lava. His name is Yosef. A chuukese kid who came to live with some puluwat relatives. Anyways, are you now living in Africa. I remember last time we spoke, you said you will take up the job in that area. I am now residing in Hawaii on the island of Oahu. Please respond to my email if you come across my message. Thank you
