• 50Fotos -- Chuuk, Micronesia

    50Fotos of Chuuk, Federated States of Micronesia. These photos are from my brief trip to Chuuk in July 2006, but I lived there with my wife from 1974-76 as a Peace Corps Volunteer and also conducted master's thesis research there in 1979. In those days, the islands were known as Truk, and were part of the U.S, Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands. These photos are of the main lagoon island of Weno (Moen), and of my former home island of Tonowas (Dublon). Some of the people pictured I've known for more than 35 years. The Chuukese song "Romonum I" was recorded in the islands by the late David Fanshawe. See the other 50Fotos slideshows.

    http://www.thecenterforlifeexpression.com Chuuk Lagoon, formerly known as Truk Lagoon, is a sheltered body of water in the central Pacific. North of Papua New Guinea, it is located mid-ocean at 7 degrees North latitude, and is part of Chuuk State within the Federated States of Micronesia. During World War II, Truk Lagoon was the Empire of Japan's main base in the South Pacific theater. Operation Hailstone, executed by the United States in 1944,[6] culminated in one of the most important naval airstrikes of the war at Truk. Twelve Japanese warships, thirty-two merchant ships and 249 aircraft were destroyed, although the larger warships had moved to Palau a week earlier. In 1969, French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau and his team explored Truk Lagoon. Following Cousteau's 1971 television d...

    Video and photos from our November 2010 trip to Palau and Yap: Tue 23 Nov 2010, Day 15 in Micronesia. Long boat ride to the amazing south end of Yap. We dive the Yap Caverns; lots of deep canyon swim-throughs connecting georgeous shallow coral tops. Then, going a bit further up the west side, we dive Spanish Wall and Cory's Reef. The Caverns seem unchanged from our trip 12 years ago, the the latter two sites clearly show the damage of the two typhoons Mitag(2002) and Sudal(2004) [http://faroutliers.wordpress.com/2004/04/15/aftermath-of-typhoon-sudal-in-yap-micronesia/].

We are taken to snorkel some amazing sites that Ron Leidich, founder of Blue Planet has pioneered-featuring shade loving corals unlike any we have seen as coral reef divers. It was so cool that we decide not to kayak so we could have more time to snorkel Disney Lake-A salt water "lake" only accessable at low tide through a tunnel from the ocean. We ended with a rip-roaring snorkel at Lolita's Garden on an incoming tide.

http://www.thecenterforlifeexpression.com Chuuk Lagoon, formerly known as Truk Lagoon, is a sheltered body of water in the central Pacific. North of Papua New Guinea, it is located mid-ocean at 7 degrees North latitude, and is part of Chuuk State within the Federated States of Micronesia. During World War II, Truk Lagoon was the Empire of Japan's main base in the South Pacific theater. Operation Hailstone, executed by the United States in 1944,[6] culminated in one of the most important naval airstrikes of the war at Truk. Twelve Japanese warships, thirty-two merchant ships and 249 aircraft were destroyed, although the larger warships had moved to Palau a week earlier. In 1969, French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau and his team explored Truk Lagoon. Following Cousteau's 1971 television documentary about the lagoon and its ghostly remains, the place became a scuba diving paradise, drawing wreck diving enthusiasts from around the world to see its numerous, virtually intact sunken ships. The shipwrecks and remains are sometimes referred to as the "Ghost Fleet of Truk Lagoon". Scattered mainly around the Dublon, Eten, Fefan and Uman islands within the Truk group, a number of the shipwrecks lie in crystal clear waters less than fifteen meters below the surface. In waters devoid of normal ocean currents, divers can easily swim across decks littered with gas masks and depth charges and below deck can be found numerous human remains. In the massive ships' holds are row upon row of fighter aircraft, tanks, bulldozers, railroad cars, motorcycles, torpedoes, mines, bombs, boxes of munitions, radios, plus thousands of other weapons, spare parts, and other artifacts. Of special interest is the wreck of the submarine I-169 Shinohara which was lost when diving to avoid the bombing. The sub had been part of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

More information about the video content bellow: 1. The Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) are Kosrae, Pohnpei, Chuuk (formerly Truk) and Yap, stretching over a vast expanse of Pacific Ocean just north of the equator. Together, the states comprise around 607 islands (a combined land area of approximately 702 km2 that cover a longitudinal distance of almost 2,700 km just north of the equator. 2. During World War II, Chuuk Lagoon was the Empire of Japan's main base in the South Pacific theatre. In 1944 it was destroyed by US bombers, in an attack that lasted 3 days, sinking 12 warships and 32 merchant ships. The consequences of the attack made Chuuk lagoon the biggest graveyard of ships in the world. 3. No visit in Yap is complete until you have a chance to see the Stone Money Banks located throughout the island. Massive pieces of Stone Money line a stone pathway in the villages displaying the wealth of the village. Here, size does matter as each piece has a value based on where it came from and how it was made. 4. Every year since 1952, the United States Air force has carried out ‘Operation Christmas Drop’ to give gifts to the people of the remote Kapingamarangi Atoll. The gifts are donated by the people of Guam. As well as useful supplies like fishing nets and tools, the parcels also contain toys and school supplies for the children of Kapingamarangi. The boxes are dropped from a large cargo plane, on parachutes, and can weigh anything up to 180 kg each. 5. Nan Madol is an ancient ruined city built on man-made islets. It is a ceremonial compound, built on a network of man-made structures just offshore, on the eastern side of Pohnpei. It was a scene of human activity as early as the first or second century AD. By the 8th or 9th century, islet construction had started. 6. The Rumung people, living in the far north, are fearfully conservative. The island of Rumung has been forbidden to all foreigners since the 17th century. The absolute preservation of culture and tradition was paramount to the community of Rumung. 7. For such a small and isolated country, it had a lot of contacts with the western world. Since the 19th century, it was ruled by Spain, Germany, Japan and the US. Their former capital city, Kolonia, was built by the Spanish, but after independence the Micronesians built their own, new capital: Palikir.

Ghostly ocean-floor graveyard of hundreds of ships and planes makes eerie memorial for WWII attack on Japanese Pacific base More than 40 Japanese ships and 250 aircraft rest at the bottom of the Truk Lagoon, western Pacific Ocean The ships and planes went down during the Allied forces' two-day Operation Hailstone in February 1944 The underwater grave is the largest of its kind and popular among divers seven decades later More than a thousand miles away from the nearest nation, at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, lies a ghostly graveyard of ships and aircraft sunk in the height of the Second World War. More than 40 Japanese ships and 250 aircraft have their final resting place at the bottom of the Truk Lagoon, 1,118miles from Micronesia, making it the largest of its kind. The vessels and airplanes went down during a two-day attack by the Allied forces known as Operation Hailstone, on February 16-17, 1944, destroying cruisers, auxiliaries and merchant ships which severely injured Japan's presence in the Pacific. During the war, which ended seventy years ago, the Japanese used the surrounding islands of the Truk Lagoon - now known as Chuuk - as a base against the Allied forces in New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. Seventy-one years later the underwater grave is a popular site for divers as fish invade the decayed war wreckage. Nick Blake, 49, from Woking, visited the site in May last year as turtles swam among the debris. He said: 'Dives were typically about one hour, sometimes a little longer on the shallower wrecks. We would typically do three days per day and I clocked up over 30 dives during my trip. 'Whilst I had gone to Truk fully prepared to photograph wrecks, what surprised me was the diversity of subject matter on each wreck site. As well as the wreck itself and the fascinating contents of the holds, they are festooned in coral, which makes for some fantastic photo opportunities. 'Without a doubt this stunning destination, with almost 70 charted wrecks, is truly the world's wreck capital - particularly in view of the sheer number of wrecks, their preservation and stunning condition.'

It was so cool that we decide not to kayak so we could have more time to snorkel Disney Lake-A salt water "lake" only accessable at low tide through a tunnel from the ocean. We ended with a rip-roaring snorkel at Lolita's Garden on an incoming tide.

MaxGXL - The Closest Thing To The Fountain Of Youth! http://www.369918.max.com This is a short video of an ongoing construction site in Fefen Island in Chuuk State. My Dad was filming this and I happen to have stumbled upon it in his digital camera. I figured it'll be a great addition to my video collections. I just can't help but be amazed at how beautiful Mother Nature can be while untouched by human civilization. The sound of wind blowing and the nature's backdrop all adds serenity to its captivating grandeur. :) Weno, Chuuk State, Federated States of Micronesia August 14, 2012 .
