Those Parts of the Sleeping Lady

Kosrae is known as the "Island of the Sleeping Lady." The profile of the island does look like a woman laying on her back.

Her features become fuzzy below her waist, but above that, you cannot mistake her for anything but a woman.

When I leave my office here at the Kosrae Campus of the College of Micronesia and turn to the right, I am confronted with the two massive and most conspicuous parts of her anatomy.

It makes me a little uncomfortable and I have often diverted my eyes. I know they are only a pair of mountains, but it's hard to see them as anything but parts of that lady.
