Road to Hana on Steroids

We like to call the road that circles Pohnpei the "Road to Hana on Steroids".  If anyone has ever taken the real road to Hana on the island of Maui you will know exactly what we are referring to.  This roadway is curvy and full of potholes.  It also serves as a sidewalk.  It isn't uncommon to have volleyball and baseball games going on in the road.  As you can see the jungle on both sides of the road are thick with growth.  Chickens, pigs and dogs are common road hazards.

 The small "grass hut" pictured below was recently erected and now is a home for a family.  Maybe they drive a school bus.  As you can see the bus is new and very nice.  The old ones were falling apart. 
 This is the road (essentially one lane) that goes up the mountain to the Uh Branch.  It also provides one of the few views of the ocean in the distance.  The only problem is that there is no picture opportunity that doesn't include power poles and lines.
