Sleepy anyone? The photos show that some of you need extra sleep! I hope you guys are not having wild parties at night! Pack your DS and PSP away and enjoy what you can only enjoy there. School is going on as usual, student council snack bar sales are down as you guys are not here. I hope you had a nice b-day Mr. Nishi.
Beautiful Sunday! Aloha all! It is Sunday in Hawaii and a beautiful one at that. Yesterday was voggy (is there such a word - if not, there should be) because we had no tradewinds but today, they're baaacck and it's much nicer.
I went to the service at Mililani Hongwanji this morning and spoke to someone who saw the play at HMS both nights. She said that it was well-attended for the run, the sets were well done and the costumes were gorgeous. She also mentioned that her glowing review may be biased since she's Miss Taira's mother - ha, ha!! Regardless of her relationship, I'm sure that all of the students' and the director's hard work came together and the production was truly a work of art. I do hope that you get to view the DVD of it when you return!
Aaaaahhhhh - I had to smile when I saw the photos of you at Good and Plenty! We were there, too!! I loved the fried chicken and just the down-home, plain food. I felt that the fare offered was just as advertised by its name.
I'm sure, though, that you are walking off all of the food that you seem to be consuming. Being on a tour is physically more taxing than most of our every day lives so it balances out. As you enjoy the food experiences, be mindful and grateful of how fortunate you are -- there was an article on the front page of this morning's newspaper about world-wide food shortages and how critical a commodity food has become.
You are now about halfway through your trip - enjoy the journey!
