  • Japan language was very middle-aged Palau woman explained politely. Was taught various things you can't learn this.

You can read every word in the Etpison Museum in an hour or so. The whole upstairs is a gift shop. Be sure to go all the way downstairs, where there's a small exhibit on shipbuilding and ocean traveling.
