Butaritari airport

My mom stole this picture to use it as her member picture :-( I shall tell her to change it, cause this is MY picture! The fan she is holding is made by a woman we met, she made it from leaves on the pandanus tree. It was very nice of her to give it to us, cause my fur is made for cold norwegian winters, and not for warm days on equator!


On this picture I am very tired, cause I had been telling these school kids all about Norway and the big forest where I was born. They had never seen a real forest, just palm trees and pandanus trees, and they had never seen a moose before, either. But they had seen mountains and snow on pictures.

Sunset on Butaritari

I took this picture of the sunset from our cabin on Butaritari, isn't it beautiful?

Hm, now you are going to think that Butaritari was the only place in Kiribati i was, I shall have to write some tips to prove that I have been to some other places too!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Palm tree leaves taste good!
  • Cons:A bit hot for a moose
  • In a nutshell:No cars to be afraid of, except on Tarawa.

    Looks like you had a great time here Elge, but doesn't look like there were any trains for your Mum to enjoy ... ;)

    No, Elge, I cannot give you a million ratings, that would not be right, since we are members of the same family and visited Kiribati together!
