Nauru remains a nation where laughter rings out in the most unlikely places. Visitors to the island agree: They are very hospitable people and it is impossible to walk more than ten meters without being offered a lift.
The flood of asylum seekers is seemingly unquenchable and Nauru seems to be the buffer zone in Australia's Pacific solution to its refugee problems. Many Nauruans however seem less concerned with the economics involved than with the dimension of human suffering. They have donated piles of used clothes, hats and toys, and a number of families have asked asylum seekers to lunch.
Nauru is one of the most hospitable nations in the Pacific.
