Waikiki, Why?

 jellyfish tank at the Waikiki Aquarium.

This is a photo of the jellyfish tank at the Waikiki Aquarium. The photo came out so bad, it actually looked sort of cool

I’m currently staying at a hotel about two blocks away from the Waikiki beach. I couldn’t get into a hostel but the hotel I’m staying at is only a bit more per night more than a private hostel room, and I get my own bathroom and a kitchenette, so its not so bad. Considering how much hotels go for around here, I’m not complaining.

I wasn’t hoping to be in Honolulu that long, but it looks like I’ll be here till Saturday. The Hawaiian Airlines flight to Tahiti only is once a week and if I take any other flight, it will cost at least $1,000 more, so I’ll just hole up here till then. This will give me the opportunity to get any final stuff done I need to get done, maybe apply for some visas, get my international drivers license, and do some video editing.

I should be on Easter Island a week from Monday if everything goes according to plan. If not, it will probably be Wednesday.

Sunday I visited the Waikiki Aquarium. The Waikiki Aquarium is probably the best aquarium in the world for coral and marine invertebrates. The coral they had in their tanks were enormous. Having had a coral aquarium for over five years, I can appreciate having coral the size of your torso. The Waikiki Aquarium has the luxury of using natural light for some of their tanks as well as natural seawater. They also have nice tanks with sea dragons and several species of jellyfish.

I have a lot of interesting stories about my first two days in Waikiki I’ll be posting tonight.
