A travel writer's view of economic growth

"Instead of the development, filth, crowds, and smoke-spewing motorbikes and diesel trucks that are, sadly, so common in this part of the world, there are hills, rolling into the sea, wild tropical flowers releasing their scents, brilliantly colored birds trilling after a rain shower, and some of the most pristine waters in the world".
From "War and Peace" by Samantha Gillison on Yap and Chuuk in Micronesia. Samantha Gillison grew up in Papua New Guinea.
