A Business Trip

Ah, the sacrifices I'll make for my job. I was forced to present a paper I wrote at an astronomy conference. Darn the luck, it was in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. However, being a loyal company woman, I bit the bullet and made the trip. Despite the harsh sacrifices required, I decided to stay a few extra days and explore the island.

    Being to Maui but not Big Island. So I enjoyed a wonderful virtual tour of the different beaches and sights. Hope to visit Big Island and other islands when I go to Hawaii again :)

    Black sand, wild donkeys and just 5° C! You 've given me some completely new ideas about Hawaii. A great page! I love your pictures. Mark had already told me you're a wonderful photographer.

    Nice job on your Big Island/Kona/Volcanoes National Park pages. I was just in Hawaii (Oahu and Kauai) earlier this month. Can't wait to go back!

    Lovely pictures, sounds a great trip. Amazing landscape at Mauna Kea. Perhaps you will have a chance to return to Hawaii one day. Liz.
