For those who are newcomers to Gadao's beachfront corner of the web, you might be wondering...'Gadao- what kind of name is that?

Let's Learn Chamorro!

It is an ancient language with it's roots dating back 5,000 years! Gadao has gathered for your convenience links to some excellent Chamorro language resources.

Gadao's Bonus Special Feature

Recently Gadao was asked a question by a web site visitor regarding Guam mammals. As a result of that query and my subsequent answere, I thought I'd post for everyone's entertainment and edification some links about the ever popular Chamorro delicacy of fruit bats! Hey I know you won't see fruit bat on the menu at McDonalds, or a new Chamorro Slam breakfast at Denny's featuring these creatures! But they were and still are popular enough to be endangered. So why not learn a little about some research that was done regarding these animals and reflect on their cultural significance.
