We have, of course, left Hawaiian waters and are now on our way to the Marquesas Islands, specifically Nuku Hiva. It is the typical sea day with all of the activities I have described before. I will probably go to a presentation on pearls today as we will visit a pearl farm and I want to know questions to ask. Will we buy? Undecided so far, but will get some information today.
Everyone in Hawaii greets you and says goodbye with the word “Aloha”. I meant to publish this earlier, but here it is – the meaning behind Aloha as told to us in Hawaii.
A – (Akahaki): Kindness, expressed with tenderness
L- (Lokahi): Unity, expressed with harmony
O – (‘Olu’olu): Agreeable, expressed with pleasantness
H – (Ha’aha’a): Humility, expressed with modesty)
A -(Ahonui): Patience expressed with perseverence
Maybe the world needs more “aloha”. What do you think?
