Kayaking through History

We took our kayak through the ruins of Nan Madol yesterday with our friend Celia.

Nan Madol is the ancient city of the sadeleurs, who ruled Pohnpei from approximately 800 AD to 1650 AD. The most preserved structure was used as the tomb of the sadeleurs (bottom left photo), and it can be reached via a walking path from Temwen Island. Yesterday, we put our kayak in at the causeway between the main island of Pohnpei and Temwen Island. Navigating our way through the mangrove channels, we found multiple structures of the once great city of Nan Madol that are not accessible via the walking path.
