I finally got around to resizing and uploading my pics from Hawai’i so I wanted to share some memories of my recent visit to paradise.
We got to the islands Saturday night after waiting five and a half hours for our plane. A little advice, don’t ever fly Northwest Airlines unless you absolutely have no other choice. Not only was the plane so late that it blew our whole first day, but on the flight over there was no snack service at all. No pretzels, chips, nothing unless you coughed up $5 for a snack box. Lame. So we got to the hotel Saturday night, checked in and just hung out until Sunday. We spent the whole first day sitting here:
Waikiki Beach. It was fabulous, and exactly what we needed after such an awful travel day. I mean, how can looking straight up and seeing this
not make a person smile and forget everything else? Don’t ask me, because I know not.
So, after a full day of lounging in the Hawai’ian sun and floating in Hawai’ian waters, what else was there to do, but head to a luau! Germaine’s Too Good To Miss luau, that is!
It really is Too Good To Miss too. Why you ask? Could it be because of the half nekkid hulagirls?
Nope! Well, okay, yes, but there’s more. Could it be, the dancing warriors?
My wife Steph would tend to say yes there.
(Yes, she is in fact drooling. By the way, I can’t help but proudly show off my lovely wife gazing out at the lovely surf at the luau. It was all so, lovely.)
Now, could it be Too Good To Miss because of the Mai Tais?
That’d be a reasonable argument, as they did get me leid.
But no! This luau is Too Good To Miss because of a little delicacy called Kalua Pig!
For the uninitiated, whom I pity, Kalua Pig is a pig which has been salted with sea salt, wrapped in banana leaves and burlap, set into an oven dug into the sand and buried with hot lava rocks to cook for hours on end, until out comes The Food Of The Gods. It really is amazing, and I scarfed down two and a half plates of it. I kinda like it.
Oh, and for the ladies, here is your kitchen staff. My wife was a fan.
Anyhow, moving on. That was Germaine’s luau, which I can whole heartedly say really is Too Good To Miss!
