Brief Note from Honolulu

Getting to Honolulu was a bit of an ordeal. First, my flight from Dulles just got caught in the Sunday monsoon, so ended up leaving an hour late. Which was an issue, since I had just under an hour for my connection. Fortunately, the flight from LAX to HNL was also delayed - by over 3 hours. I never heard why (beyond the aircraft arriving at LAX late) but it must have been something other than weather as United gave us compensation. (I chose the $ off for future flight option, for several reasons.)

So I ended up getting to the hotel at about 2 a.m. Monday morning. I still managed to get up in the morning and do the downtown Honolulu volksmarch. The state capitol is very unusual - suitable for the climate, but hardly what I expected.

I did a Waikiki historic route volksmarch today, interrupting it in the middle for a submarine ride. I've also spent time napping and drinking things with umbrellas in them.

Tomorrow I head to L.A. for the National Storytelling Network conference.
