Without being at war, the Marshall Islands has regularly suffered from armed assaults such as bombings, air-raids and nuclear explosions. It is fair to say that this archipelago has suffered in the past, fortunately it does not show. On the equator (or almost), the reactivity of nature is amazing. The coral reefs
have healed their wounds, multi-coloured fish have returned and on the white sand beaches, again you can see a few tourists who are very pleased to be here instead of it being predominantly a military base.
