Just a quick update to say I’m here in Hawaii, and I have internet (at least for a moment!). Things you should know:
-Air New Zealand is fabulous. I want to kiss them. They gave us hokeypokey Kapiti Ice Cream with dinner. And I got to watch Dr Who for my whole trip. Being on an airplane was actually fun!
-Being a taxi driver in Hawaii is easy. 1) You don’t have to know how to drive (not a single turn signal used in 40 minutes in the cab) and 2) You aren’t expected to know how to get ANYWHERE. I had to have a map book and give directions.
– It is so HOT. OMG. I’m on my third shower in 12 hours and am about to go swimming.
– The air smells so good. And it is so soft. And trade winds are wonderful. I feel like I’m in a hug.
– I’m off to swim and eat malasadas and poke and Mexican food. Heaven.
