Amazing mystery girl

I have no idea who this girl is. The comments on YouTube and Facebook all seem to be in Vietnamese; so I suspect that she might be Vietnamese. But the banner behind her is Chinese. And the instrument appears to be either a Guzheng (Chinese harp) or Gayageum (Korean harp). Anyone know more?

It would hard to vote against a candidate who has an ukulele in the presidential band!

"Tiny Chapel"

Great option for an unconventional church which might occasionally need a "building" for special occasions such as weddings.

I do love Guam -- and its people! But there is more to "Only on Guam" than the Guam Visitors Bureau reveals. It is probably the quirkiest place I've lived -- but maybe that's why I feel so at home there. I think, though, that the island is rapidly improving. Each time I return (I shoot for twice a year) it is noticeably cleaner and greener. There are more health care options and the infrastructure seems more stable. AND they are getting better at promoting themselves. Guam runs on tourism -- but the beaches never feel overcrowded. Enjoy the video.
