Our very fun trip was over. We flew from Kona again, transferred at Honolulu and went back to Japan.
At the Kona airport, my son bought a plain hotdog, which was six dollars. How expensive! I saw a ketchup pump for the first time. I wonder if Americans like ketchup very much. In Japan, I haven’t seen additional ketchup even in McDonald’s. I think that Japanese prefer mayonnaise to ketchup. In addition, I wonder why hotdogs aren’t popular in Japan.
We got on a shuttle bus for transfer as soon as we arrived at Honolulu airport. Then, we were able to get the international gate directly.
The cookies of this company are very delicious.
Good by, Hawaii. I’ll for sure come back someday.
Hawaii Report #16
After spending busy days in Waikiki, we headed for Kona in the Big Island. On this day, my husband came from Japan and joined us.
When I got to the island, I was surprised. There was no building at the airport. The gate has only a roof. I thought it must have little rain in this area.
The taxi ran on one long road. The scenery was very impressive for me because there was nothing there, no building, no traffic light, even no grass.
I saw such a strange landscape for the first time. The other day, I heard the news that astronauts are living on isolated Mauna Loa volcano in the big island to simulate life on Mars. Yes, it makes me imagine Mars!
This video was taken from a resort area toward the airport on our return trip. The scenery suddenly change from green grass land to black gravel.
