Again, not a big action-packed day, the only big plan we all had was to head out to Ala Moana for a bit of shopping. As luck would have it the “pink line” trolley stops right near our hotel. Ah, the trolleys. I haven’t seen this anywhere else in the world (yet), but Honolulu is full of these buses that masquerade as old-fashioned trolleys, quite similar to the old San Francisco cable cars. But instead of grabbing a cable that runs under the street, or connection to overhead wires like a tram or a trolley-bus, these are just regular old diesel buses with a trolley-shaped body. Weird, but I guess they must be popular with all us tourists. Most of them are run for he benefit of Japanese travel companies, but the pink line is open to anyone. As for Ala Moana itself… Well it seems to have lost a little of its sparkle since 2009. On my last visit I spent a good two and a half days there wandering around and taking it all in. This time, Perry and I were as good as done by lunchtime. Still, I managed to pick up a few t-shirts, and a ‘rashie’ shirt should I end up venturing into the water. I didn’t buy any watches which was a good achievement in itself… I’ve probably overdone it on that front already for this trip. 🙂 Once we returned to Waikiki we stopped by a tour place, and organised some activities for the next two days. And the day after that is … I can hardly bare to type it … our last day of holidays. Dinner was at Keoni’s – a mostly Thai restaurant with things on the menu like burgers and spag bol – but we all opted for the Thai food which was delicious. I’d had dinner there back in 2009, and it was just as good as I remembered. After a brief wander through the International Marketplace again for touristy stuff, that was it – time for bed, we have an early start for tomorrow’s tour!
