My Sicilian friend (She also lived in Charleston when we did and now she lives in Japan so our friendship has spanned 3 different continents!) is visiting Guam this week (Hooray for our first house guest!) to take the test to become a U.S. Citizen despite my constant questioning, "Even with the 2016 shit show of an election, are you absolutely sure you want to become an American?"

After our day at Ritidian Beach we took the long was home driving along the coast. We stopped at a roadside stand in Merizo to try Tuba as advised from my friend Kari who once lived on Guam. Tuba is an alcoholic drink made from the sap of palm trees. It was ice cold and tasted like kombucha. We all liked it!

Both kids cried. Rya cried at the top of the waterfall because she was too scared to jump but it was too dangerous to try to climb back down so after about 30 minutes of drama Trent eventually had to throw her off. This caused even more drama and probably trust issues and some emotional trauma. Currier cried on the way back because most of the hike was uphill in mud and he was "sooooo tired"! Even so, both kids proclaimed that they couldn't wait to do another Boonie Stomp.
Note to self: Next time bring tissues, more water and a change of socks.
