Where I stayed
We left Fiji at 10pm on Easter Sunday and arrived in Honolulu at 7am the same day - mental. Something to do with the international date line but basically it meant that we had Sunday twice. It was the longest day of my life - literally.
We've been here a week now and have been doing the usual tourist things - Pearl Harbour, Waikiki Beach etc. We also hired a car for the day and explored the North and East coast. We also went to the cinema to watch Scream 4 which was wicked
Waikiki is hugely busy - packed full of tourists (a lot of which are Japanese). The beach is rammo and the sea is full of surfers. It's just as I had imagined it.
I am going to make final mention of my tan - it's not going well. On a scale of 1 to 10 where 1 is see-through and 10 is the girl who works at the Tanning Shop, I am about 2. That is an improvement of course and I am grateful for that. However, considering that my family hover around the 5 mark in winter and Steve is currently nudging a 6 or 7, I am seriously wondering whether I have some sort of deficiency (don't answer that Flor!). Anyway, I will perservere but I must accept that whatever happens I will never get past a 3 - even if I walk the Sahara desert without any sun lotion on.
On that note, I shall sign off. We are flying half an hour to the island of Kauai tomorrow which is just north of Oahu.
