More food!

Today was another day in Honolulu. We are leaving at 5:30 today for Kona. We are 5 hours behind Wisconsin, so it was kind of weird to wake up this morning and have football games on the TV already in the 2nd quarter. Glad the Packers did well today! Today we ate breakfast on board and took a bus to the Ala Moana Center where we shopped for souvenirs. Lunch was the highlight of the day again. The food court at the shopping center had just about every type of food you could want, but Julie wanted something with Spam in it. The first thing we found was at a Hawaiian fast food shop, called the "Beach Boy Special". It didn't start out so bad, Spam and rice, but then it was covered in something called "Stew Gravy". (Trav: I could only picture Gravy Robbers from Tim and Eric). Too scary for our taste, but we did manage to find Spam sushi that was much more palatable :)

I had some curry with fried chicken and Kalabi, which was really good, and then for desert we got some Shave Ice. It tasted like happiness mixed with sunshine and kitten kisses. Needless to say, we both enjoyed it quite a bit.

Hey Julie...are you really on vacation? We've seen pictures of Justin, but only pictures of your hand. Did you send your hand on vacation and make the rest of you stay home?? How sad!

Thanks for the postcard! Glad to hear from you...hopefully Hawaii will be in our future eventually! So I have to ask, why did you have to eat something with SPAM in it? Of all things this doesn't sound like the cuisine woman I know...perhaps there are some virtues of this canned food I don't know about.
