Moving to Hawai'i: The Consequences

In the Honolulu Advertiser this tourist or "malihini" or "stranger to the land" writes to tell people that the highways are ugly. Duh! There are too many people on O'ahu. Too many people period. It's typical though of a tourist or "stranger of the land" to think this way when they are the ones who contributed to it. Yes... I despise hypocrits ;) They shouldn't be destroying the land... not just the highways:

Hawai'i's highways are shamefully ugly

Yes, I agree that our highways and freeways are horrible to look at. What a shame! Can't more people be hired to clean up? I don't think there's enough help out there cleaning our freeways and highways. So many weeds and so much rubbish. I think our population is getting too big.

We just came back from a wonderful trip. North Carolina's highways and freeways are clean, so beautiful with flowers of all different colors; they look lovely. Now why not in Hawai'i? We really should have flowers on our highways — after all, Hawai'i is supposed to be beautiful — not just on our beaches and mountains.

But why would she travel to NC? She has some ties there. No one goes to NC unless they have ties there just as she doesnt have ties with Hawai'i yet she complains about the highways.

LOL Well with Hawai'i... you would think it's different. Not many Hawaiians go to North Carolina then write to the editor to complain about the flowers on the highways. In fact... not many Hawaiians complain to the editor about something like the highways. It's usually about artifacts, the land, etc. I could be wrong but chances are this is a malihini... not an 'oiwi. Thats what Im saying :O

Well for someone who was just there last month, I find nothing wrong with the highways in Hawaii. Too many cars maybe but everything else is beautiful. Get chance, take the I-H3 to Kaneohe.... very beautiful...

I guess only one problem I would have is the street maybe. There are a lot of pot holes on Ala Moana street in front of the mall. I ran over one and almost blew out my tire. hee hee. :)

Really? Oh wow... I thought the drive through the tunnels was fun. ;) Getting lost looking for Anna Millers in Pearl City and winding up somewhere in Mililani was scary. :O
