Thanks to the wonders of our planet we experienced the longest Friday ever: We left Japan on Friday evening, crossed the date line and arrived in Honolulu on Friday morning!
Our lovely friend Willow picked us up at the airport. After a refreshing shower and a change of clothes we went out for lunch together. Since it was her birthday we ended it with a big, delicious piece of cake.
The culture section of the day was a visit to the instalation "Footprints of Life" by Kusama at the iconic IBM building. It was one of those things that simply demand for several pictures.
Willow, me and Olivier, all wearing our lei for Aloha Friday:
Palm trees - must be a tropical island!
The building also has a great bathroom that goes straight into my collection of "stylish toilets around the world".
By the end of the afternoon our jet lag kicked in and we had to go home and take a good nap.
Of course we wouldn't let a Friday evening go to waste! Willow drove us to Waikiki where tons of people were walking up and down the streets.
Finally we treated ourselves to some Häagen-Dazs and went close to the beach to eat it.
Not done yet with the shopping? Don't worry, H&M is open until midnight and of course they also had a sales section. You can't beat a rack of clothes with heavily reduced in prices!
So I'd call this a very successful day.
