Tarawa, capital of the Republic of Kiribati

Kiribati is an island nation in the central Pacific Ocean. Tarawa is the capital city. With over 50,000 inhabitants, half of the country’s population lives on the atoll of Tarawa.
The sad part is that Kiribati is expected to be the first country to lose all its land territory to global warming.

The stamps are part of a series of 16 stamps, issued in 2013. The theme is water transportation.  

Thank you soo much David!
