Day 34 of 111. Guam

Guam is the first island of the Mariana Islands and is above the deepest part of the ocean. One third of the island is owned by the US military. Guam is a strategically very important location and has been occupied by the Spanish, the Japanese, and currently the USA. We toured the southern end of Guam where there are several important military sites, visited Jeff’s Pirate Cove for fun, and then visited an outlet mall. The tour was interesting because we saw some guns and bunkers used by the Japanese when they occupied Guam as well as a monument to Magellan.
