We touched down in Koror Palau on a cloudless evening – with a full moon blazing and reflecting off of the wings of the plane the entire flight over from Guam. We had arranged a homestay ahead of time and the owner was going to pick us up. We arrived at 130am, waited until 2am then called our homestay. The father of the owner spoke no English. We called back with someone from the Visit Palau doing the talking. He told us, “oh she’s not here – she is out fishing right now” – omg – fishing at 2am and totally ignoring your guests!
We quickly slipped into crash and die mode and the lady from Visit Palau found us a hotel and taxi and within 30 minutes we were in deep sleeps. There is much to see here – we will rent a car the next few days and will line up several tours. Stay posted!
