Some relax time by the hotel pool.
Traffic was crazy- took over 2hrs by taxi to get there and I was afraid I was going to miss some of the show.
Luckily got there just on time...but then the show started an hour late at 9pm. Very short set list too.
1. State of Grace
2. Holy Ground
4. The Lucky One
7. Fearless (acoustic)
8. You Belong with Me (acoustic)
9. Sparks Fly
10. I Knew You Were Trouble
11. All Too Well
12. Love Story
13. We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together
Had the more expensive hotel taxi pick me up since I wasn't sure what the taxi situation to get home would be like. Was sure he would leave me since the show got out around
10:30 and I was supposed to meet him at 10pm, but he was still there.
"Perfect for those with limited time, like short airport layovers, this 2.5 hour orientation tour offers a glimpse of central Guam, with
a drive through Tumon, the islandís Tourism District; Tamuning, the commercial & business area; and the Capitol of Hagat-na. Visit the
Basilica, Plaza de Espana, Latte Stone Park, Fort Santa Agueda & Two Lovers Point."
"Two Lovers Point Park marks the site where two star-crossed lovers plunged to their deaths several centuries ago. The daughter of a wealthy
Spanish aristocrat and a young Chamorro man had fallen in love but were forbidden to marry. They decided that they would rather die than
live apart and fled to this point where they were trapped by soldiers. The two lovers tied their hair together and jumped from the cliff.
Today, youíll find an observation platform on the cliff, from where you will find have breathtaking views of Tumon Bay."
Quite a bit like Hawaii.
Japanese WWII pillbox.
Obligatory stop for lunch from the local KFC.
Latte Stone Park
"Latte stones are the pillars which provided the support to ancient Chamorro houses built as early as 500 AD. They are unique to the Marianas
and comprise two pieces: a halagi, or supporting column made from coral limestone; and a capstone, known as a tasa, made from coral heads.
The bones and important possessions of the ancient Chamorros were buried beneath the stones and remain untouched. Many Latte sites can still
be seen in the north of the island."
"The Plaza de Espana, which is located in the centre of Hagatna, contained the palace of the Governors during Spanish rule. Although most of
the palace was destroyed when Hagatna was bombed during WWII, there are still three structures standing, including the three-arched gate to
Almacen, the Azotea and the Chocolate House."
Japanese WWII caves and tunnels
"Fort Santa Agueda was built in 1800, overlooking the city of Hagatna and its bay. The fortís cannon protected Hagatna harbour and the
lucrative Galleon trade until the 1898 when an American frigate attacked the harbour during the Spanish-American War. The old Spanish
cannon still points out over Hagatna Bay from the remnants of Fort Santo Agueda."
