|We went to Ritidian Point
in Northern Guam. There we saw hieroglyphics, which are drawings of pictures
on a wall. They were made by ancient Chamorros. If you look closely,
you can see a hand print in the picture.
After asking for blessings
from Charmorro ancestors to protect us, we entered into the forest. In
the forest there are a few small caves and a big cave. There were also
a lot of rock paintings in them. There were a lot of stalagmites and stalactites.
After that we saw a half of a latte stone. While we were at the caves people
swear they saw a wild boar. Then we went back on the same trail. We finished
our field trip with lunch on the beach. We learned a lot and truly are
lucky kids to be learning about a way of life from the descendants of people
who once lived here.
You may choose to continue
your tour of the northern part of Guam. Eventually you will end up
at Andersen Air Force Base. We visited a variety of airplanes that
were used during the Vietnam War. Weapons used are also on display
for visitors to observe.
