How important can one road really be? When it's the biggest and one of the only roads in the entire country, it's crucial. The South Tarawa Road in Kiribati is the lifeblood for more than 50,000 people of this atoll nation. And as Tenneke, one of the country's ambulance drivers explains, the condition of the road can be the difference between life and death. TRANSCRIPT: 00:11 My name is Tenneke.

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 fishing communities of Kiribati, a Pacific nation comprising 33 small islands, speak about their loss of livelihood and erosion of their culture at the hands of destructive and oversized fishing vessels operating under European flags, ownership or management. Overfishing is a global problem with alarming and indisputable consequences: 90 percent of global fish stocks are currently overexploited. Support low impact fishers and help ensure fair fishing.

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.
Marakei is a small island to the north east of Tarawa's northern tip with an almost completely enclosed lagoon and some very odd traditions. One of those traditions is that first time visitors to the island must travel round the island with a guide in an anti clockwise direction. On our trip, we were invited to stop by one of the villages for lunch and to meet some of the locals, free food was too good to pass up and we got a song to boot!
