Jingle bells

We spent our first day on Ypao beach, one of Guam’s beautiful beaches! Surprisingly, quite a large number of people spent Christmas Day on the beach here, there were lots of barbecue parties and even live music. A very interesting Christmas tradition. Unfortunately, we didn’t take any pictures, because we weren’t sure how safe it would be to leave a camera on the beach, while we were swimming in the clear blue water. Yasu’s crappy goggles even allowed us to see some tropical fish, which scared and fascinated me at the same time. After dinner we stopped at our favorite shop, the 24 hour K-Mart, to buy ourselves some snorkel-sets to be able to see the fish better tomorrow.
We had Christmas dinner at the Outrigger hotel in Tumon Bay. Where they had huge Christmas trees and live music. We were lucky to be seated right in front of these musical brothers playing exactly our kind of music.
We really enjoyed the show and the free flowing drinks (champagne for me and iced tea for Yasu). We ate food from the extensive Christmas Day Buffet. Buffets are always interesting because you get to try things you would never order by itself. Like raw oysters and colorful cakes...
It was a very different Christmas this year, but it was merry nonetheless!
