Aloha from Waikiki!
After PR weekend (which was a blast, I will write about it sometime), I flew here, because SF is half way to Hawaii for me, so why not???
Next to my own home, Hawaii is my favorite place on earth. This is my sixth visit to the islands, so below I will point out some things I did for the first time ever.
Last night's sunset at Waikiki Beach:
My glasses are falling apart, but this is a great sunset. The brightest I think I've ever seen!
Portuguese donut (malasada) as recommended by Sunny Gal (my first one):
They make them to order, so I ate mine hot in the car on a Waikiki side street after getting out of their scary, minuscule parking lot.
The chocolate filled one was the best, but the custard filled was a close second.
I went to Lyon Arboretum (first time). This was the weirdest looking but cool looking piece of vegetation (first time)!
I hiked Manoa Falls (first time):
I was a little afraid of falling on the muddy path after reading the trip advisor reviews, but I was slow and careful and only slid a few times, never fell.
So, if it doesn't rain a lot, then there isn't much water to fall at the waterfall, and I swear in real life it looked like more water than this!!
Oh and here's Waikiki at night:
And the view from my hotel room:
More to come...aloha!!!
