Yap Days 2008

Yap Day 2008, Day 2We've just had an excellent Yap Day weekend.

Yap Day occurs yearly on March first, but it usually spreads out to either February last or March second as well. This year it was March first and second.

This is a tradition that has been going on for 40 years now, where the Yapese celebrate their history and culture, for Yapese as well as visitors to enjoy.

I, as well as anyone I talked to, had a great time. Hopefully my selection of photos over on flickr will give you some idea of the festivities. Me, I am as pleased as can be that I finally got a chance to go out on a real Yapese outrigger sailing canoe!
