Guam First Impressions

Guam isn’t something you think about much, so I had no idea what to expect. I was mentally using American Samoa as my measuring stick for Guam. Both are American territories in the Pacific, so I figure that would be as good a benchmark as any.

(Actually, I do have one thing when I think of Guam. For years, I’d attened the national high school debate tournament and every year a team from Guam would show up. Every year they were dead last. You were lucky if you got to debate Guam and were nervous if you had a Guam judge)

American Samoa was much more Samoan than American. Guam, at first glance, seems very American.

I’m in the same time zone as Sydney, so this is the farthest point west I’ve been so far on my trip. I’m sure I’ll have more to say tomorrow.
