I arrived safely at Honolulu International Airport at 3pm on Monday, December 28. The 10 1/2 hour flight was long and boring, but I sat next to a nice young woman named Beth. She's a student at Chapel Hill. She seemed like a fun, funky person. She's played the ukulele her whole life, and decided to bring it to Hawaii with her. We were both relieved that we sat next to a nice person during such a long flight. We didn't do much when I got to Hawaii, since it was late in the afternoon. We mainly wandered around the upscale hotels and the beach near Dad and Patty's condo.
