Coming soon to Kanton Island is the arrival of the Matangara...the big cargo
ship! It visits two times per year. And they are hoping it might arrive next
week. In addition to bringing heaps of food, an outboard motor, and other
various goodies, the ship will also bring a few more residents. Four
children will return here to be with their families during the school break.
Also, Davis' wife will be coming on the ship, after taking their small son
to Fiji to live with his grandfather (it is very typical for grandparents to
raise the small children).

We were hoping to be here for the arrival of the ship. But it has already
been delayed a few times. We don't know when it will leave Tarawa (the
capital), so we've decided to move on.
