Off island

For a little while.

Going to Guam, which is only a 50 minute flight from Saipan.

Everyone describes it as a much more commercialized, fast-paced version of this island. It's economy is actually doing pretty well at the moment, and the general opinion seems to be that jobs are available there, if I want them.

I don't really want a fast-paced, commercialized life style at the moment. It sounds like there is "more" of everything on Guam.

More jobs.
More expenses.
More tourists.
More US military personnel.
More american businesses.

But I don't know yet if I'll have many chances to be online...this weekend is the Baha'i National Convention of the Marianas-so through Sunday I'll be pretty busy. I will also get to check out some meetings on the island, more people means more fellowship. Looking forward to it!

wow--cool--going to guam. Met a Sister from Chook (Chuk?) today. Close to you. Americans call it Truk. Do you know the universal "hello" in the islands? Raising your eyebrows when you meet or see someone. I did it today with her, and she did it back! We laughed about that.
Going out to the Declaration of the Bab celeb at Marc's. Wish you were here!
