U.S.S. George Washington

September 24, 2012

You guys! There’s an aircraft carrier parked in the harbor on the Guam Naval Base right now. And we got to go on a tour. How cool is that?

Some thoughts:
1. Although the carrier is very, very large, it seems awfully small when they told me that they had about 5,000 people on it.
2. It is confusing to spend time with something that is both an engineering marvel and an instrument of destruction.
3. The planes and helicopters fold up like origami to save space.

Some photos:

Huge!

Beware!

Planes are ominous!

In the captain’s chair on the navigation bridge! I apologize that this is not a great photo, in terms of the exposure and whatnot. Also, since looking at the pictures, I’ve realized that shirt is not my friend, and we should spend more time apart.
