Island One – Oahu

Flowers of HawaiiHoly cow!  I’ve been on vacation now for about 5 days.  We started on the island of Oahu and just traveled today to the island of Maui.  Neither hotels have had wifi, seriously. The first hotel had high speed internet but I don’t have a cable for my laptop….  But this current one provide the right cable so I can actually be in the internet!  Yay!  I also have my own room and bathroom in this one a great luxury!  However the chairs in my dad’s room are “weird” so he has to sit in here with me, disturbing my solitude.

The first island of Oahu was very beautiful and our place was in the middle of the city of Waikiki.  Pretty much a busy city with great views and a gorgeous beach nearby, within walking distance.  We got to tour Pearl Harbor and see the USS Arizona Memorial.  Beautiful in a way something like that can be.  We ate at some interesting restaurants and I tried a Blue Hawaiian.  The pineapple here is amazing.  One neat thing we got to do was go to a Polynesian performance.  We spent the day learning about their culture.  Then we went to a luau with lots of  local food which was delicious.  Then we ended the night with an outdoor drama.  It was a little late for me to enjoy it entirely but the actors and native singing were very good and entertaining.

Haven’t really talked to anyone from home, my sister and Derek a little.  Today we just spent traveling to this new island and going shopping, eating and chilling at the pool.  We checked out the nearby ocean.  So it was a pretty laid back, enjoyable day.  The sun’s not shinning too much.  I don’t know if it’s the same on this island or not but on Oahu a few times a day it rained. So you’re out walking in the hot sun and it starts sprinkling so lightly that it nearly evaporates as it hits your skin.  It only lasts a few minutes and usually results in a rainbow which you can see end to end.  Gotta love that.  On that island we saw several rainbows on any one day.  Pretty awesome if you ask me.  Well, peace out for now.  More to come soon.  Aloha!!!!
