Ray was eating his lunch alone when we met him. So, it was easy for us to ask him where we could find a good place to eat. He suggested a couple of restaurants thinking we had a ride, when we told him we didn't have any, he nicely offered to accompany us. We were hesitant at first, but considering the kids, we took the offer. And after a short introduction, he then asked us if where do we want to eat... He offered Ross or Kmart, and we chose to visit Kmart.
He then took us to Guam Premier Outlets to see Ross. Ross, focuses on discounted RTW's, shoes, accessories and alike... as it's tag line says,"dress for less". We were able to find good buys as a treat and remembrance for our visit. We didn't stay long as there were still a couple of places we were going to.
Next stop was Paseo de Susana where a smaller version of the Statue of Liberty stands. We saw some Chamorros fishing nearby and tourists parasailing in the deeper sea were also visible in the place. It was a cool location to enjoy the sea breeze and the sights of the sea.
A famous church in Guam was our next destination: Dolce Nombre De Maria Cathedral - Basilica. Ray said the church is air-conditioned when there is a mass, but having a high ceiling compensated the temperature inside at that moment. The feeling of serenity and calmness as we entered the church also added to our ease. We were the only people during that time, so it was just perfect to pray. They say, when you visit a church for the first time, you pray and you get to have one wish. I say, the Lord is listening all the time.
More, the church is located within the perimeter of Plaza de España, another tourist destination. We enjoyed relaxing there for a while... under the shades of the trees and the cool breeze, just perfect. Also in the area were the Guam Insular Force Guard monument, Chocolate house and Pope John Paul II statue.
We had our well-deserved meal at Mc Donalds, the one near our place. We treated Ray for a meal, though we know, it wasn't enough to return all the favors he had done for our family for the day... it was a gesture that we were truly grateful for touring us around Guam. So after, we returned the favor by accompanying him to watch his favorite game, we watched a friendly game of soccer nearby. Then he gave us a ride to our hotel and bid our farewells afterwards.
