Solomon Islands

What would you like the youth of America to know?

Thank you for your interest but unfortunately our protocol does not allow HE the Governor-General to sign postcards and other requests. Thank you for understanding.

What they sent me:
I do understand, but it was still very cool to get a letter from the other side of the world.

The Solomon Islands is known for its culture, intricately designed handcrafts, scuba diving, and pristine natural setting. Most of the islands are unspoiled and uncrowded. The water around the Solomon Islands is warm, clear, and so full of marine biodiversity that it is called "the Amazon of the oceans."

The Solomon Islands, especially Guadalcanal, was the site of many battles between the U.S. and Japan during World War II. Artifacts from the war can still be seen strewn throughout the jungle.
