  1. I find it intresting that the Yappese have a "healthy diet", I wonder if it is because of their traditions of gardening, harvesting and fishing? Do you know if they grow rice in Micronesia or if they import it? I wonder if they had rice before they were introduced to Japanese culture? Great job!
