Aloha from Waikiki!May 10, 2017 in the United States
Wowzer! I'm actually in Hawaii!!!
11am, Wed 10 May for the second time, having crossed the International Date Line overnight: Maybe it's because I'm tired, but I just refilled my mug of tea from the maple syrup jug.

7pm: Settled and sorted 😎 I've got some good tips about things to do. All is good. I could keep the Japanese theme going if I wanted ... suchi and bento boxes and Japanese sweets in the supermarket.
My hostel is very clean and best of all they gave me my room at 11am when checkin is at 3pm. I'm very grateful - they are good guys here.Read more
