In summary, MK lives on Guam and is envious of people who live in other beautiful places. She thinks that if Guam was flat, you could easily run the 25 or so miles from tip to tip! But its only about 5 from side to side. She also thinks that if MK moved to Kansas, she would be able to see the most beautiful place in the world.

The first image is looking to the left of my balcony, the second is looking straight out. Kind of like a panorama shot.

If you liked them I post more later. Maybe some of Hawaii or Oklahoma or Florida or whatever.

lol, contrary to somewhat popular belief, you don't see all the snakes if you live in a residential area. They are brown tree snakes, they're brown and live in the trees. They eat bird eggs, so much they have killed off many bird species that weren't tough enough to handle the wrath of the tree snake. The birds they didn't eat are hardcore man, they're about halfway between the size of sparrows and pigeons, and have been known to kill people for tampering with their nest.

If you're not Filipino or Chamorro (the natives) they aren't, but if you are they are! I've received several recipes recommendations I won't try just yet...

I guess so.
BTW, I've heard there are lots of US Marines on Guam.
Are they gobbleworthy?

Wow I love birds but I like snakes too because my mother is really afraid of them(she even can't stand them on TV or a phot) and that gives me a chance to bother her sometimes! So what should I do now? Should I hate snakes? :confused: But well there something I'm certain of it: I can't stand :grumpy: arildno ! :grumpy:

Those guys are tough! I've hunted them before. Takes several shots to the head. And they fire back! They roam in packs and truly are the most dangerous game.

I've lived here for many (well not a lot) years, and seen many tropical places and still find the most accesible beach on Anderson Air Force Beach to be the most beautiful beach in the world. Nothing compares. The problem is, I haven't gotten a good picture yet. And I'm afraid I might forget the majestic beauty.

Naw, but it is tiny. If Guam was flat, you could easily run the 25 or so miles from tip to tip! But its only about 5 from side to side.
