The same thing is done in American Samoa. They also had a little local TV show called Flight Night where they would interview people, have conversations, and just hang out. Am. Samoa is so small youre bound to know someone on the incoming flight.
This is just the nicest piece I have read in a very long time.
>TIL On the tiny island of Manhattan, everyday for about two hours before sunset hundreds of New Yorkers, young and old, meet in a field in the middle of the city to just hang out.
It's called a public park...This one happens to double as a landing strip.
Wonderful, reminds me of my childhood in a Lancashire village in the early 1950’s... magnificent ... thank you
As a flight student, there are fewer really relaxing and calming places on earth than standing out on the tarmac on a clear starry night. Sometimes I stand out there for the longest times near our hangar.
PS - Our town doesn’t have many flights a day especially past like 8pm.
Sounds like the early days of the multiplayer mod for /r/justcause 3
I wish America had something like this. I've been to Italy and China and they both had large mixed generational groups just hanging out on the piazzas and squares.
As a US citizen is a big city, it's always been intriguing and satisfying to see how people from poorer countries always seem so genuine, humble and happy with lives that aren't focused on materialism and a need to impress others. I'm sure in Tuvalu there are monetary classes and balances; but, in general, it just seems so simple and easy.
Woa. That's incredible. Would be an amazing place for a holiday!
Interesting and wholesome article. Well worth the read.
That's a nice thing to do. Just make sure you have clearance first!
Soooo, real life Island of the Sequined Love Nun?
