Kauai – Day 5

Well, we didn't take the helicopter tour yesterday. Scheduling conflict. It should go down today. Relatively quiet yesterday, and we topped it off with a Luau that our traveling companions treated my wife and I too. I've always resisted going to one of these group things, but this one was put on by a family who's been doing it for decades. There's nothing in the world like competence. Three pics today. This first was quite a lucky shot, I think, of a peacock trying to impress. I used the flash and it really brings out the colors. I forgot the name of this tree, but its bark is sure interesting. Some newly hatched chicks having a conference between two parked cars. I've learned that the reason for all the chickens is the hurricane that struck the island in 1992. Apparently, because of the climate, it's an ideal place to breed, raise, and train chickens for cockfighting around the world. The hurricane came through and blasted apart all the coops around the island.

I intended to travel the world "homeless," but the Covidiocy Panicdemic squashed that. I became an American expat living in Thailand. I celebrate the audacity and hubris to live by your own exclusive authority and take your own chances. ... I leave the toilet seat up. Read More
