Saipan -- Coral Reef and Prisoner of War Camp

Picture 1:
Saipan coral Reef and PW (Prisoner of War) Camp.
The coral reef makes a face where the waves reach the reef, at least I can see it.
I was standing next to an Ammunition bunker on the left side and down below is the Jap War Prison (camp) and I was told that 10,000 Japanese were there at that time.
Picture 2:
Coral pits. They used the coral for mixing with blacktop to make the roads, must in the same way that we have rock quarries here. The sun reflects on the blacktop road and makes it look very bright.

The top picture looks like it was taken from the northern end of the island. That end of the island is still mostly uninhabited...mostly.

In all of your pictures the thing that amazes me the most is how there is almost no vegetation. On most of the island the jungle has sprung back. However, in the last 10 years we've tried to pave as much of it as possible.
