    It was fun to find this article I read on Ponape in 1979…
    Tuesday April 17, 1979
    “Another morning Marshallese language session. I am picking up a lot, mostly being able to pronounce the various sounds correctly is enough of a reward for me. After lunch everyone seemed a bit tired so we decided to have language training after dinner. Father Soucie conducted our ag session in the afternoon. It consisted of redoing several things that we learned in Frogmore. Since we were not going to have necessarily fertilizer or pesticides, it meant we had to learn otherwise to combat disease and pests. Father Soucie asked which of us were going to the atolls in the Marshalls. Dave and I said it was us. He laughed and said, “well enjoy your rest and whatever else you do for the next two years, cause vegetables won’t grow there!” We were done by 4 and so we decided to head for the falls before dinner. It was a 20 minutes hike through some really picturesque areas along the riverbank. The beauty of the falls is indescribable. We learned it was featured in the May, 1967 National Geographic magazine. The cool water felt great, the heat of the day evaporated. It was so refreshing we didn’t want to leave. Only 4 of us went, and when we told the others how great it was, we talked about getting out of class early and all heading there tomorrow.
