Hope you had a closer look at our itinerary suggestions for your Kohala Coast vacation and we will hear from you with your questions, when still planning your vacation, and comments, after visiting the Kohala Coast.
Today just a short message about a new Hawaii blog which we found worthwhile sharing with you. We recently came across this new Kohala Coast blog spreading the word about ancient Hawaiian culture & traditions using modern technology of blogging. Here is a short passage from the blog about its purpose:
"Aloha, welcome to Kahiko (ancient) Connection, an experiment in sharing the thought of Danny "Kaniela" Akaka through 21st Century technology. In this content-rich virtual hālau (meeting house) we hope you'll find interesting food for thought to chew over and enjoy.Kaniela is dedicated to living and perpetuating the value and traditions of Hawai'i so they work with the 21st Century. This site contains some of his mea 'ai mama (food to chew on) -- the kind he'd tell you if you "talk story" with him -- a Kahiko Connection."
The Kahiko Connection includes the schedule for Twilight at Kalahuipua'a at Eva Parker cottage, Mauna Lani Bay Hotel, which is open to Mauna Lani guests, Kohala Coast visitors and residents. This once-a-month Hawaiian kind gathering is very casual. So bring your own folding chairs or beach towel and picknick for an evening under the stars by the ocean. Have fun with Hawaiian stories, hula and music! You will also meet Danny Akaka in person at the gathering.
We also liked the part in the blog that visitors can learn a little Hawaiian with its correct pronunciation. Got to start somewhere when preparing your trip to the islands.
That's all for today. Aloha, Pua Your Kohala Coast Guide
