Journal Entry:
Since I was feeling a little of the effects from last night I tried to sleep in as long as possible. Stacy and I met Eileen and Simon at noon to go hike Sokhes Ridge (the giant ridge that looms over Kolonia). It was a nice pleasant hike - not to hard (good thing considering everyone's condition). There was lush rain forest paths with the decaying remains of W.W.II Japanese guns and bunkers - pretty interesting stuff to explore. From the top of the ridge the view was fantastic - you can see all of the Northern coast of Pohnpei! It was hot though, so when we got back at Eileen and Simon's house at it was easy to persuade us to join them on their boat. We drove out to the pass through the outer reef and stopped for a snorkel and swim. Back at their place we hung out and had a beer, and then got invited to great spaghetti diner. The night ride back to PATS was very long.
