Where's Tai?

Day 73: Windward side May 11, 2006

Filed under: Travelling — Tai @ 9:49 pm


Today decided to go to to the famous Polynesian Cultural centre on the windward side.  This was set up by the Mormon Church years ago to help students fund their education and give people an incite in to the Polynesian cultures.

The Centre is divided up in to islands – Tonga, Tahiti, Fiji, Samoa, Aotearoa (NZ), Hawaii, Marques Islands and Rapanui.  There are replicas of the villages and people doing the arts and crafts.  Mostly students working here.  They also have an Imax theatre and an evening performance from all the islands.  Well worthwhile.  You feel a lot of pride for all the Polynesian cultures.  They do lots of activities during the day like – cocnut tree climbing races, leanring the poi, drum classes and cultural performances.

Manawanui, how do you like my tattoo? 

OK so it will wash off in the shower.

    Good Grief

    I couldn’t believe it when the staff told me about a great read from a guy named Tai. You are sooo funny. Hawaii is exactly as I remembered. I shall be reading the continuing story of the intrepid traveller.

    You took some great photos of the windward side of Oahu and the Polynesian Cultural Center. I know the young lady in the Maori village you are standing next to.
