Playing tourist in Lower Tumon Guam with my Canon T3i Part 2

You know the Slingshot right?

I was trying to fool my friends who are not in Guam by taking a picture of the Slingshot from afar and trying out blur the strings and the pole so that it would look like a UFO. It look like one when I posted the picture in Facebook but when viewed at full image size the strings and the pole are there. 
But in case you get to Guam for whatever reason why don’t you try riding the Slingshot.

One of the attractions in Lower Tumon Guam where you are literally shot up using super large slingshot

The image below is the one I was trying to use to fool my non-Guam resident friends but they have a very good eye.

The two seater ball which house the riders of the slingshot Guam looks like a UFO to me



How high could this be?

I was wondering how hgh are the poles to which the Slingshot Guam is tied to?

Playing tourist in Lower Tumon Guam with my Canon T3i

It’s been a long time since I posted some pictures about Guam. Well now that I have my handy dandy Canon T3i(I dont know why they nickname it “Rebel”) I have revisited the famous Lower Tumon today making the stroll at around 10:00 am and luckily is not yet a so busy time. Usually tourist like Japanese, Koreans, some Filipinos, some howlies, and a very few Russians stroll here to shop.
First stop is Burger King in Lower Tumon

View from the top at The Westin

We just had a Sunday lunch buffet  at Taste in The Westin Hotel here in Guam. 

We were about to leave the hotel when my nephew asked if we can see the view of the pool and these is what we have seen(sorry for the blurry pictures I was only able to grab my Nokia C3-00 to shoot a few images)

He made a funny comment, we were in the Westin but what we can see is a beautiful view of Nikko Hotel.

I was not able to get a picture of the restaurant were we had our lunch. The restaurant is called Taste here is a picture from the web.

I was walking in Micronesia Mall this Sunday. I heard that a new shoe is in town. The name is not known to me but news said this shoe is comfortable. Its made with cork sole leather body and some buckle or two just like there sales pitch as shown in there website:


The store’s name is Collado in the first floor of Micronesia Mall. Check it out. This shoe brand might be the shoe that you have  looking for. The cork sole gives the comfort at the same time it takes the shape of your foot. Some are made cloth like  material allowing your foot to breathe.

I have been planning to take pictures of Tumon along the San Vitores road and also the Tumon Bay. I got A chance this morning to wake up early, about 4:45 am, but to my disappointment the sun was not up early today. I contented myself taking pictures of the different places I have been in Tumon. The dim light makes it hard for me to get a good shot so I just click any chances I got.

Holiday Inn, I parked the pickup here. Its kinda safe here and that I was planning to walk along the beach but it was too dark
