#0191 Guam Government House Agana Guam (1980). The back of the postcard reads “The beautiful new building on a hilltop overlooking the city of Agana and the beautiful Pacific Ocean – is the official residence and reception area for the governor of the Territory of Guam”. This was the very first stop on my very first overseas trip with my sister and maternal grandmother. I wonder whether what this building looks like 30+ years on.

PS. Time seems to have gotten the better of me in the last fortnight as my personal admin hits a new high. This morning I spent more time thinking about whether to skip the daily sketch (as I tidied up the house) rather than actually sketching!
