The whole reason we went to the USA this year was to attend the wedding of our friend Val that we met when we were teaching English in South Korea - I mean if you get asked to a wedding in Maui how can you turn that down?
The wedding was held in Lahaina and we spend most of our free time exploring the area. I found this cemetary (I think its called Puuphia Cemetery) fascinating. Firstly its built on sand and secondly most of the headstones are from Japanese settlers.
hall named after him and appears on the $50 New Taiwan dollar. He's a fascinating guy if you're interested in the Chinese revolution. As it turns out he spend around seven years in Hawaii - amazing.
Baldwin Home Museum, the home of an early missionary. So we decided we may as well check out both.
Final stop before the wedding itself - the banyan tree! So I've seen a lot of banyan trees traveling through South East Asia and the pacific. This one was bigger than most, in fact it was a whole block of tree and it had a craft market happening underneath it - fancy.
I told Val the fact I traveled 8 hours to attend her wedding wasn't really proof I loved her - the real proof was that I was willing to wear white.
