Images of Nauru

The island-nation of Nauru holds some very interesting records among them being the world’s smallest republic (at only 21 square kilometers), being the second least populated country (at less than 10,000 residents) after Vatican City, and being one of the very few countries invaded by 3 powers (the Japanese, the Germans and the Americans) in World War II.

I had the pleasure of visiting Nauru several times between 2007 and 2008 and photograph exciting scenes of this exotic Pacific island.    One of my posts, Snatching Birds from Mid-Air in Nauru, has become one of the most popular and was recently featured in the in-flight magazine of Nauru’s flag carrier, Our Airline.  Below is a gallery of some of the images I captured in this exotic country (links to the actual posts are provided after the gallery).
