Taking advantage of McDonald's and their free wi-fi, I thought I'd give an update. Between work responsibilities, I'm enjoying this quaint little harbor town, billed as the southernmost city in the United States (if you don't count Guam and Saipan because they're not states). But you wouldn't know that what with the windy weather bringing a bit of chill (and sulfur dioxide) when you go to Kilauea Crater at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. It's only 4000 feet, but it got cool enough to put on a jacket and ride around with the heater on.
This is a place I could live in. I love old cities that still retain a neighborly community feel to them, and all the old wooden houses up the slope of the Mauna Kea. I would say it reminds me of Eureka, California, but with palm trees, but then I remembered that place — also devastated by a tsunami — has palm trees, too, despite its northern location. And a pervasive pot culture, too.
