    I have had the privilege of touring all three of those places quite a few years ago, when the tours were led by my friend Chuck "Doc" Burrows, who founded Ahahui Malama i ka Lokahi. These are fascinating places to visit, and I'm confident that anyone who takes the tour will learn many interesting details about these wahi pana (places of significance) and the mo'olelo (legends) associated with them.

    sabotaj524I'm proud to say that I can call Hana, Maui my home. Raised there my entire life. I miss it so much. I miss the felenig of ohana and love that everyone there has. The people here on the mainland can learn a thing or two from the Hawaiian people. I'm going home for christmas and I can't wait. I want to feel the warm sand, smell the flowers, eat amazing food and just be around good people.
