Yap stick-fighting dance

The "cultural tour" to a local Yapese village today was a lot of fun. I chewed my first betel nut! Man, is that red spit gross. I did, however, feel a bit dizzy after chewing it. It was neat to see some of the same kids from two years ago performing in the stick-fighting dance. When I have time, I'm going to dig up the old photos and see how the kids have grown.

I wish I could post more photos from here, but the internet is a bit slow to be image greedy. :)
