Here are some pictures of typical Kolonia businesses. The first is typical of street stores that all over the island. Most are much smaller and sell the essentials. Christmas shopping is in full swing and there are crowds on the streets and traffic a nightmare. The second pictures is of a gas station. The price of gas is usually $5 a gallon they require you to pay in cash or by check. No pumping your own gas here. The third picture is of the typical store in downtown Kolonia. And we are fortunate to have the only movie theater in all of Micronesia. You may not be able to see the movie selection but they are already playing the Hobbit and it's not out yet in America. Pirating of films isn't an issue here.
