i'm still pooped, but I figured you guys deserved a few shots!
that was the view from my hotel balcony
the one day i wore makeup. after i swam it all got in my eyes. bad.
Waikiki beach is amazing!
May Day is Lei Day in Hawaiiiiiiiii (actual radio announcement lol). a whole gorgeous festival with a Lei Day Queen pageant and everything.
That's all for now, but you could really tell from Lei Day that Hawaii is a very family and community driven place. Not so much in the touristy parts, but even the tour guide on my bus to the luau was supremely friendly and invited us all to add him on facebook. i haven't yet but i found him, rofl. It's a neat, neat place. The culture is awesome.
