I couldn’t resist snapping a few of the new buildings that have appeared on the skyscape since my last visit…Seems there’s more coming…..
I was privileged to see and be part of Hawaii’s state celebration of Kamehameha’s life and the unification of the islands.
This took place in Hawi.
Part of the celebrations was Hula Ki’i a type of hula with Ki’i hawaiian puppets. This was a collaboration between two halaus (a group of Hawaiian hula dancers) one coming from the island of Kauai and a local big island group. One of the elders (kumu) of the Kauai halau was my friend Mauli Cook. Some highlights from a great day watching talented performers….

I’m visiting Bali for a few weeks…
So much beauty everywhere…even amongst the chaos and noise tranquil places can be found and eyes can feast…

A spike of exquisite purple flowers twined on a tree…
A door to tantalize ….. beyond…
A never ending Bali sunset….
Currently visiting Bali with my sister….this afternoon went for a stroll down a small lane or a gang as it is called in Indonesian….
