Only four books this time round, one of them a reread. And I'm still at 58 of 75 on the Carnegie Medal winners.

Travelin' Tuesday: Guam

The Talofofo Falls are on the Talofofo River (which flows into Talofofo Bay - I detect a pattern here), in the southeastern part of Guam.  I'd heard of them long before I ever went to Guam (probably from George Tweed's Robinson Crusoe, USN), and they were one of the first places I wanted to visit there.  A bit of a drive, as I recall, but it was well worth it.
