Day 7: Palau

img_6608My seventh day was sent on Palau, a true island paradise. The first day was spent in three lectures to the Palau bar with Ninth Circuit Judge Paul Watford. The day was a good time to be indoors. A tropical storm moved in with torrential rain.

Indeed, the power went off in the middle of one of my lectures and we had to switch over to a generator.

I am staying at the Palau Pacific Resort, which is a gorgeous location on the beach.

Here are a few pictures. Tomorrow I am hoping that the rain will stop and the Judge and I will go snorkeling around the famous Rock Islands. Due to the weak Internet service on the island (which is done through satellite), I have not been able to post pictures thus far on the blog but I will update once in an area with service.

  1. Watch out for the salt water crocodiles – they hang around the famous Palau rock islands. I defended a man there many years ago who was accused of beating his brother to death with a bicycle, then cutting him up in little pieces and feeding him to the crocs. Homicides take on a different flavor in the islands. Oh, and be sure to get a tuman for lounging around the house when you return home. Safe journey.

  2. Back in the old days -1985, not too old- one could dive the outer reefs and see dozens of sharks every dive. Beeeg ones.
    Now they are mostly gone. As are most of the world-class incredible coral reefs and much of the diversity.

  3. Palau is really awesome! I ve been in Palau in 2016 and had really a great time! The nature is amazing, diving is absolutely stunning and the people are friendly! We came from Amsterdam with stops in Bangkok and Taipeh! It really took a long time but really was worth it! Just the prices for hotels are quite expensive and you have to book early to get a good price for a decent room (http://palauvisitors.com/ would have helped me a lot find a good hotel). Iā€™m definitely goind back to Palau soon!
