Where to go ...
Colonia is the capital of Yap, Micronesia. A great place for diving with manta rays who could be seen at the underwater channels and their "feeding stations" (it's a place where little fishes living which eat the bacteria from the dermis of the manta rays)
Colonia is really small village, not really a capital. But everything is done with love. Everywhere palm trees and other exotic plants and flowers. Instead having such simple sign like in Europe, they create wonderful little artful sign. The heigth is more then 2m, so I had to take the picture free-hand without looking through the ocular. It is not perfect, but I like it.
(in the WS another sign)

Hallo Herr President, you really got around this world and continues traveling like crazy. Is there any connection to your profession here? Are this all diplomatic travels? :-)
Besides the shape of the little roof I never would have guessed this being in Micronesia. Nice composition and not necessarily engaging in any cliche image of that place.

A funny and very nice image, these signs of alive colors, with the vegetation that surrounds them, are very peculiar and have a great graphism. I like.

The signs really do show their loving pleasure in beauty. The WS really increases the impact of the PP. HLJ, Pat
