First Impressions

by wjw on November 1, 2012

Well, so far, so good.

Here’s the first view of Waikiki from the hotel balcony.  Gotta say it’s a lot prettier in person.

Went walking afterwards, had some Korean street food, bought some wine, watched the sunset.  After hours on a plane, there wasn’t much energy for anything else.

Jealous!

Are you going to meet any of your fellow genre writers while out there? (like Linda Nagata and Kate Elliott)

I’m a long time reader, and I live in Honolulu.
Let me know if you want food or activity suggestions, be more than happy to help!

Matt, if only we’d known! We’re only in Hawaii for two nights, and we’re leaving tomorrow.

Next time…

For the same reason, I’m not seeing any of the literary community. Who I don’t think live in Honolulu anyway.

If you hit Baileys & Morimoto’s those were great choices. There are some great local dives serving amazing food (Kalua Pork Bao @ Side Street Inn is a good example), but Hawaii is a part of the US, and relatively easy to visit, not like some of the other places that you are visiting.
I’m just a intermediate snorkler, but the reefs off the east end of Waikiki are an active marine preserve and surprisingly active at times. I’ve seen several different types of Moray eels, Hawaiian Octopai, and various trigger fish, Moi, jacks, and others in the right season.
Have a great trip, I’m sure it’s warmer than NM in November ;)
