Going to school by boat

It’s pretty cool to be a Ri-Ejit — while majority of Majuro residents commute on taxis and personally owned vehicles to go to school, work or stores, we get to ride a boat! Every morning and evening, the edge of Rita, Alwal village, is packed with Ejit residents either coming into Majuro or returning for the day.
