Greetings from Guam. After a smashing water aerobics class first thing in the morning, Diane and I began our daily touristy activities. Here I am in Guam by a little under ground fish viewing tunnel called the Fish Eye.Here are some of the neat looking fish I saw in the Fish Eye!After looking at the fish we went to the only vegetarian restaurant & market called Simply Food. It was a lovely place run by 7th Day Adventists. Later in the day we went to the local public broadcasting station so that I could watch the weekly filming of the show Academic Challenge Bowl, produced and moderated by my friends here. Dinner & drinks on the Lanai.On day 6 we did more water aerobics, then I was left to do my own thing for a few hours. I started out at a tourist shop, I’m sorry, I just love tourist junk. I got a big ol’ frozen coffee drink with chocolate & whipped cream (vacation!), and I was on my way down the main drag of Tumon. Below is a photo of Tumon, it could really be in any city in the US, it’s kind of weird. A big time tourist area. After shopping I took a little swim in the ocean right here, it was nice & refreshing.I saw this guy while I was swimming. Pretty cool eh? This is a Blue Star Fish, it’s not really blue.This is one of the many local wedding chapels, it’s really fun looking, somewhere between a chapel in paradise and a chapel in disney world.Here I sat with a cool beverage and wrote a postcard. It’s in a really big hotel that has a water park in the back yard. Looked pretty fun. If you ever make it to Guam you must try Thai Kitchen, OH MY GOODNESS!!! It’s sooooo good, and the folks there are mighty friendly.
After celebrating pirate Jim’s 60th birthday we went to the Chamorro Village Night Market. It was dark so I wasn’t able to get many photos, but here is a guy with his Coconut Crab on a leash.
I tried a local desert that was like a tapioca and coconut tamale, called Apigigi, I think. Shoot, I’ll tell you more later.
