Only a few min's walk from the Bairiki Square the business area in Tarawa, this is the residency of the President of Kiribati, while viewing the building from the road I get talking to the only local Taxi Driver & he also offers to take me to the Presidents weekend home, I'm not really sure if this is totally true, however I went along for the ride & relaxed in the area for a while taking to the taxi driver. Later I then returned back to Bairiki area,. I managed to re-visit the Presidents main home for a second occasion & filmed from outside, I got talking to a couple of the security guards & some guards were relaxed about filming the property while others were not so relaxed !!!! Using my camera appeared to be no problem.
Any Australians who are either in Tarawa living on a permanent basis, or on a permanent or temporary business trip, or a Australian tourist or volunteer are strongly advised to register your stay at the high commission in case of any type of emergency e.g evacuation or for medical reasons including death !!!!! PS .... Don't forget to give your passport number.
For the people of Kiribati, climate change isn't something to be debated, denied or legislated against — it's an everyday reality. The low-lying Pacific island nation may soon be underwater, thanks to rising sea levels. In a personal conversation with TED Curator Chris Anderson, Kiribati President Anote Tong discusses his country's present climate catastrophe and its imperiled future. "In order to deal with climate change, there's got to be sacrifice. There's got to be commitment," he says. "We've got to tell people that the world has changed." TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less). Look for talks on Technology, Entertainment and Design ...
During my travels throughout Tarawa I would often take a break around Bairiki Square & start a conversation with the locals, other tourists & some business people, free entertainment at the same time, not able to understand the Kiribati language, however it gave the square a atmosphere & good for the local businesses.
The Pacific islands of Kiribati were among the last places to be colonized by humans. But now, because of rising sea levels, they may be among the first to be abandoned. Should Kiribati President Anote Tong surrender to climate change and evacuate? Can anything be done to help him buy more time?
