All about Micronesia (Federated States of Micronesia)
Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) is an Pacific group between the Philippines and Hawaii and southern Guam Islet, a US territory. The FSM belongs to the Karoline islands, a dispersed archipelagos that were placed under US conservation after the Second World War.
Micronesia is full of interesting facts for such a small state. While many of these isles are still US territory and protectorate, the four states Chuuk, Pohnpei, Yap and Kosrae, which make up the FSM, drafted a constitution in 1979 and became an autonomous state in 1986. It was also the youngest state in the history of the region until the founding of Southern Sudan in 2011.
On a long journey through the South Pacific, from the Solomon Islands to Vanuatu, Fiji, Samoa, Tonga, American Samoa, French Polynesia and the Cook Islands, I wanted to discover the North Pacific. Here are some interesting facts about Micronesia. You probably have never even known of Micronesia or the FED.
Mikronesia is a group of over 600 North Pacific Isles, including Guam, the Federated States of Micronesia and Saipan. Do not confuse it with the Federated States of Micronesia, an autonomous nation which is also part of the Caroline and Micronesian archipelagos, as I said earlier.
After the Second World War, the state was under American rule before gaining independence in 1979. Then they chose and chose to become an autonomous state with the capitol Pohnpei. Each year Micronesia gets two third of its GNP in grants from the US and its people have the right to reside and work in the US.
It also has several Pacific and Asia Pacific communities and the populations are declining year by year. With only 7,000 inhabitants, the FSM city of Palikir is one of the smallest cities in the whole wide globe. Every times I go to the Pacific I get asked by my boyfriends about whether some of them are wearing turf skirts over there.
While this is not the case in any of the other places I have ever been to, in Japan they are still walking around with their breasts out. I saw some girls upstairs with no girls when I was there. Though these were not genuine, but an inviting tourist face, the airfield was once again crowded with headless ladies on our way out, this case not paying by the government to be there, but really tradition.
It is interesting that although a woman is without top, she would never show her thigh. That would be the top-down equivalents in the West. As in other Asian and Pacific coutries, FSM has a high level of fatty nuts use. It' a rather uncomfortable view, which unfortunately contaminates all isles.
No doubt Chuuk is the shipwreck dive capitol of the atlantic. Everything began in 1942, when a plane leaving the Andersen base in Guam, which flew a missions over the Micronesian Kapingamarangi Air Force Almighty, waved at the natives and chose to put all the objects they had on board in a skydiving dump.
Today, the droplets can reach 200 kilograms and contain things like foods, fishnets, building material, clothing, footwear, playthings and schools on over 60 of the most isolated parts of the globe, many of which have no connection with the West. Situated on the shores of the Pohnpei archipelago, Nan Madol is sometimes called the Venice of the Pacific because it consists of 100 channels surrounding it.
The building of the island is thought to have begun in the eighth c., while the MEGALITE structure began in the twelfth c., at the same period as Angkor Wat in Siem Reap. So I dared to dive to the Pacific Isles of FSM with the thought to dive into the local civilization and maybe get a little suntan.
Though the FMS states consist of over 600 islets, most of them, especially the bigger ones where most tourists are, are vulcanic outcrop, encircled by cliffs and mangrove and without sands.
