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, 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...

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 .

Video and photos from our November 2010 trip to Palau and Yap: Wed 24 Nov 2010 What a day of diving contrasts! When we dove Sakura Terrace 12 years ago, it was the most astounding stand of hard coral we'd ever seen. Now, after typhoon Sudal(2004) that is all most all gone. A lot of the small scale features are still there, but some really huge coral heads got toppled. Sad. But the following dives, all along the channel from Sakura back to base were phenomenal muck dives! Just one wonder after another, and not all small stuff. Loved it and planned to return before the Yap stay is over.
