Marshall Islands Funeral

A funeral procession winds along the only real road in Majuro, the biggest of the Marshall Islands. The mood was not conducive to photography, so I hung back to catch this fragipani blossom with the police-chaperoned hearse in the distance.

I was surprised to learn that citizens of the Republic of the Marshall Islands here can live and work in the United States without requiring a visa or employment authorization. Consequently, there is a population of many hundreds of them in Spokane.
