Federated States of Micronesia

Pacific Ocean-Micronesia Federated States of -Pohnpei  I arrive here in the middle of the night. So could not see a lot. This is the Village Hotel I stayed in. Right in the middle of a lush rainforest. Well when I woke up the view was magnificent . One of those times that you are just in such surprise how amazing the view is. The hotel was great and the surrounding area. 

Visited the main Post office down town in Pohnpei. They had a limited supply of stamps which they took out of a envelope. So a little disappointing bearing in mind the large number of stamps that Micronesia issues. 

Pacific Ocean-Micronesia Federated States of -Pohnpei-Kolonia  This is the main town in Pohnpei, Kolonia. Not very inspiring to be honest. But the trip on the canoe as showing on the postcard , I did take. I went to the famous ruins in Pohnpei, which should really be a World Heritage Site. A great way to get a good feel of how life was here many years ago. 

Here just before Christmas , so nice to show a Christmas issue. The Postmark as you can see is very large. And red, so it does stand out.

  1. If it's any consolation, Micronesia's archaeological sites (and its stone money sites) are on the country's Tentative World Heritage list and should be up for consideration as World Heritage sites over the next few years.
