There's something about a bar on vacation that relaxes us. It could be a fancy hotel bar, an unassuming neighborhood watering hole or a trendy nightclub; and it can be friendly and chatty, or anonymous and discreet. Perhaps it's comforting to know that our cocktails are made more or less the same the world wide, there's nearly always another person to strike up a conversation with if you need local tips, and there's far less social etiquette and customs to break than in a restaurant. The bar in today's Photo of the Day is on Gun Beach in Guam, a place foreign to many Americans even though it's part of our larger nation. Flickr user Peter Rood notes that it's a "great place to grab a beer after diving and watch the sunset." The patrons in this bar could be tourists or natives, but everyone looks comfortable and relaxed, whether or not anyone knows their name.
