Spent a wonderful afternoon having lunch with a Hawaiian family. When I first met them, they wouldn't allow handshakes, it was all hugging. Big hearts, big appetites and a lot of laughs and warmth. One of my co-worker's wife is Hawaiian, and he invited me to have lunch with her, his daughter and his in-laws. I had such a great time chatting and with them and learning about their diverse backgrounds...Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, Portuguese, English. One of the best compliments I received today, "You come to the Island, you will be seen as a local, not a haole." Do you know what a haole is?" Lol.
