    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.

    The only hula dancers we've seen were a couple from the Polynesian Cultural Center that participated in an orientation we attended on our first day here. But if we were in Maine, I can definitely say that the police would have ample grounds to stop me for "distracted driving".

    Temperature right now: 84 degrees, with a nice breeze off the ocean...

    Well, the only distraction here at the moment are people in winter coats and hats. Send some of that heat our way.

    Send food. I hear the eats are good there.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    Just got back from the weekly luau here at the hotel. Fantastic 3-hour show. Started with a cocktail hour featuring Hawaiian/Polynesian crafts, etc. Best part was when the guy climbed the coconut palm tree in 9 seconds. Sheesh!

    Then a big dinner featuring traditional Hawaiian fare. Delicious! Kalua pig, mahi-mahi, fried banana, coconut crusted yams, and more... And lots of fruit.

    Lastly, a typical Polynesian show. And since RULost2? managed to snag seats at the front row table, I got a great view of the hula dancers.

    One of the best thing about the tropics is the fresh fruit. I've mentioned bananas, but the pineapple is unlike any you've ever had at home. The flavor is intense. Likewise the papaya, star fruit, guava, limes and lemons... And like many other things in other areas, buying it fresh, from a roadside stand, is the best way to get the freshest and cheapest.

    Sheesh! Only 4 more days...

    (Today's beer: Primo!)

    And they're Not kidding w/their cautions about eating too much fresh pineapple!!! The ones we get are powerful enough!! Papaya's one to watch too!
    I'm just nuts about geocaching!!

    Since we are heading to the "Big Island" tomorrow, today was sort of a "wind-down" day. Souvenir shopping, getting photos printed, etc. But late this afternoon, we found Chinatown. Sheesh! What an experience! So many little strange-smelling shops and stalls... Meat and fish markets that would gross out most of the people here. Parts of animals I couldn't identify, and sea creatures that I've never seen before. (If anyone wants some dried baby eels...) We bought more bananas, a couple boxes of tea, and some Chinese garlic. And vegetables... Many things you'll never see in the Johhn'y Selected Seeds catalog! LOL!

    (Yeah - does seem like we're eating a lot of bananas, but they're only 3 inches long and 1/2 thick! LOL!)

    Oh... We did see another mongoose this afternoon. That was cool.

    Oh man, that sounds good to me. At work, late at night, a crowd would gather to watch me eat. I like the unusual stuff.

    And my fisher can beat up your mongoose. It's getting hungry, almost all the cats and gofers are gone around here.
