We started off yesterday in the Vanouver airport - one of the loveliest airports we have every seen. It is full of little stores and restaurants, while maintaining a very cozy, warm feeling. It is also full of Canadian art and culture - very impressive.
Six hours on a plane got us to Hawaii - which we haven't really explored yet. We checked into the hotel and wandered down the street to find some dinner. A couple of Mai Tai's with some dinner and we felt much better. The food is an interesting mix of Asian and "North American" - Colin had rice, pulled pork, brown gravy and fried eggs all piled on each other in a Hawaiian classic dish (with a crazy name I can't remember).
We were seated by the window during dinner and spent the time people watching - a strange mix of locals, obvious tourists and what we are sure were some prostitutes (don't worry mom it is a very busy, safe neighbourhood). Not quite Peterborough, that is for sure!
