Tinian Time Travel Tour

Found this great little travel essay on Tinian and the Marianas at the JG Ballard (author of Empire of the Sun) blog. Simon Sellars was through the region last fall, writing a travelogue for Lonely Planet and he captures a real sense of the ghosts that linger throughout Micronesia. The real gem he links to is the link to photos taken by a seabee on Tinian during the war, showing life on what was the world’s largest airport during the early 1940’s.

    Interesting. I didn’t know that Tinian was a WWII museum now. I remember when it used to be a dairy. For a short time, think it was back in the 80s, we had genuine fresh milk on Guam.

    Hey, Thomas I tried to email you, but I see you don’t have your kuentos account anymore. Just wanted to let you know that a few of us teachers are meeting regularly in a writing group. Since you’re so prolific on this blog, thought you might be interested. Let me know. My email is still the same.

    I dropped my kuentos account. I sponge my internet now and use Yahoo! for most of my emailing needs. I don’t even have a phone anymore. Haven’t figured out how to get rid of my PO Box yet though.

    Anyway, you can email me at kepuha at galaide.org – that gets forwarded to my yahoo account.
