Yesterday we want to the Polynesian Cultural Centre. Although I had been there when I was here 4 years ago, it was a place I really wanted to go back to. We were there from noon until about 9:00, and never bored. There is so much to experience about several Polynesian cultures - Hawaii, Tongo, Fiji, New Zealand, Samoa, Tahiti. There is a Luau with the traditional pig cooked in a pit, and plenty of entertainment. And there is a stage show after that. Just a great day.
Today we went to the Dole Pineapple plantation. It was very informative about pineapples and other crops grown here. There is still quite a lot of pineapple grown here but nothing like 40 years ago. The place is very commercial - 101 ways to part you from your dollar. We bought pineapple ice cream but passed up on the other myriad of purchases.
We also took a ride up into the interior mountains and rainforest. This small island has so much variety in landscape. Tomorrow is a travel day, actually two, since we cross the international dateline so lose a day.
