CONTEMPORARY IMAGES OF FUNAFUTI, TUVALU
Since the following pictures (below) were taken in 2000, there had been a number of changes in the Tuvalu landscape in less than two years!
The people of Tuvalu (Funafuti) now have paved roads, speed humps and street signs. The capital of Tuvalu, Funafuti, is now lit with street lights from one end to the other. Robert Girdo and his wife Kerrie returned from Tuvalu on 24th May 2002 and they have kindly made available many excellent updated images on their great Tuvalu 2002 Web site www.girdo.com/tuvalu taken in May 2002.
