My short stay in Honolulu-Waikiki was interesting, as I had conjured up this image of what Hawaii would be like since my childhood. When I arrived there around midnight it was damp from the rain and as the coach drove through the area all I could see was a concrete jungle with a few green palms and bushes dotted around the place. This was not my view, however, I was delighted to be greeted by a native with a kiss on the cheek, an "aloha" and a frangipani lei. Finally, I received my lei (and I mean the flower type)... as a child I fantasised having a perfumed lei around my neck.

When morning arrived the clouds were looming above and the roads were wet, so I went for a walk around the area and stayed undercover. Unfortunately I did not get the chance to see Diamond Head due to the weather. Ah well, next time :)
