What is my passion?

The Boston Red Sox.

Man, that was a short post!

OK, OK, I have more to say than that.

I have a confession to make. Although I'm pretty sure that the world does indeed revolve around me ("unhealthy amount of self esteem"), I've found out that this is not the only Saipan Blog (although I am the first result when you do a google search for "Saipan Blog!")

There are several other Saipan blogs; One of them is Walt's Escape from America.

More on Walt later...I need some breakfast.

But in the meantime, check him out. He's got a few blogs and a traditional format website on a few different topics, all centering around the theme that you should do what you love (He calls it Passion Profit!)

I love to see good people doing good things for these islands.

Thanks, Walt!

Perhaps you should clue Walt in that he is NOT living in the South Pacific!

Details, details...

Technically we are in the Western Pacific, but correct me if I'm wrong, linguistically and culturally, Saipan is the northernmost inhabited island in the South Pacific.

I pity the fool who comments anonymously

And geographically isn't it about the same latitude as Costa Rica, around 12 degrees north of the equator? I suppose calling it a north pacific island just doesn't have the same cachet.

Actually a little further north than that. Guam is at 13 degrees and Saipan is at 15 degrees.

Geographically we are in the Western Pacific, but since people associate palm trees, beaches, and sunny days with the South Pacific, a lot of people probably just find it easier to say that they are in the South Pacific.

As someone who has spent a lifetime trying to explain where Saipan, Guam, and Micronesia are in relationship to the rest of the world, sometimes it is just easier to say that it is a place in the South Pacific.
