Japanese Films @ The AGNSW

Well that was the reason for going to our state's No 1 art museum, then of course we hit the cafe and I went off and took a few photos.

B&W 白黒

It's all black and white to me.

Marukame Udon, Waikiki, they're queuing for good reason.

Great Mexican here

Touting the $4.95 breakfast

Takonoki Izakaya

Honolulu, Oahu

Yes back to Oahu and visiting The Bishop Museum, if you have any interest in Oceania this is a must see, more Waikiki, some bus trips, lots of eating, great Japanese eateries, great Mexican, $4.95 breakfast...

What's a girl like Vivienne doing in a place like this,
she might get sunburned.


Well this is America after all.
Actually, Hawaii is very anti gun.

Maui's most recently active volcano, 10.000+ feet. We were lucky to have good weather, well it was six in the morning, it's quite often a white out. Spectacular.

Haleakala silversword, unique to this crater.
Lives to be 90, flowers once.

Mauna Kea on the big island, 13,000+ feet.

Our main reason for being in Maui was to see m~'s brother and his wife.
They graciously transported us around the island, Haleakalā, Pi'ilani Hwy, Ho'okipa, Lahaina.
As you can see it's very rural, not as diverse culturally as Oahu, a bit WMCA.
No big surf this time of year so no action there. We did however learn all about windward and leeward. Windward being the typical lush tropical vegetation and leeward virtual desert.

The perpetual queue at Costco, cheapest gas around.

From our host's collection a Shin gunto. Issued to all officers of
the Japanese Imperial Forces during WWll.
