My time in the Peace Corps was spent on the island of Yap, an island that is part of the Federated States of Micronesia
The first picture is of me (in the back) and the other volunteers on my island, including our Yapese advisor, Mootmag.

This page has miscellaneous pictures from my time in the Peace Corps and Indonesia. My time in the Peace COrps was spent on the island of Yap, an island that is part of the Federated States of Micronesia located Yap.jpg (187306 bytes)approximately 700 miles south of Guam, in the Pacific Ocean. The first picture is of me (in the back) and the other volunteers on my island, including our Yapese advisor, Mootmag. To the side of us is a piece of stone money, for which Yap is known. The money has an heirloom value, and families or villages that have larger pieces or more of it are especially respected and have more power. The money originally derived its value from the way it was obtained. Young men would set out from the island, on which none of this type of rock is found, and journey about 700 miles by the stars to the island of Palau. Once there, they would mine and shape it, and then bring it back on a raft. Those lucky enough to arrive back safely would receive much fame and status.
The following photos are from Indonesia: ducks on their way to market on the island of Lombok, my friend Rita and her sister in Praya, Lombok, Komodo dragons at the zoo in Surabaya, an old man in a coffee shop in Pekalongan, an old couple with their only electronic good near a national park called Blambangan on Java, lotus flowers in Bogor, near Jakarta, and finally the sun setting on Bali:
