Two Lovers Point, Guam

A new territory in my collection :D
Guam  is unincorporated territory of the United States located in the western Pacific Ocean. Its the largest and southernmost of the Mariana Islands, with capital Hagåtña, tourism being its principal industry. Chamorro are its indigenous peoples as well as in Northern Mariana Islands. We learned about them mostly through legends and myths, archaeological evidence and  Jesuit missionary accounts. The first colony was established in 1668 by Spain, and lasted until 1898 when it was surrendered to the United States during the Spanish-American War.

The photo shows one of Guam's most populat attractions, Two Lovers Point (Puntan Dos Amantes). Its surrounded with a romantic legend of two lovers, a Spanish woman and a Chamorro man, who tied their hair together and jumped off the cliff into the sea because their families didn't approve of their relationship. Now it is a major love-paddlocks site ;)
Thank you K!
