We've arrived in Hawaii!

Beautiful day in Hawaii! After a two hour delay and an 8 hour flight we've arrived! The flight wasn't bad at all. We watched My Big Fat Greek Wedding on the laptop (Jason had never seen it). I watched some Alias, did some crosswords and Jason watched Family Guy and read Maxim. We're still very happy to be off the plane.

Nice cab ride out to the Hostel, although our driver initially thought we were going somewhere else. Bartered the price down and again we saved! The Hostel is awesome(Jason doesn't agree, but I think it has character). Nice people, cool atmosphere and a place to rest for a couple days. Much better than Chicago.

We already know where to buy our bus pass, the best ways to save money and we fit right in with the university crowd at UH.

We're currently sitting in a 24 hour Kinkos and we've discovered the internet here does what we need it to do. There should now be new pictures posted - check them out!

Anyway, Chicago was great. We managed to stay out of the rain, see all the sights we wanted and really enjoy the city for what it has to offer. The early rise this morning to catch our flight was a bit difficult, but we managed.

Looking forward to seeing Oahu and camping on Kauai. After we're finished here, we head to the local grocery store and back to the hostel to cook dinner.

Hi Guys - Glad to see you arrived safely in Hawaii. I was concerned that the server might not be working because of power dips here - but obviously its fine. :o) We just LOVE how you can keep in touch with us all and share pics as you go. Looks like someone has screwed around with the vote count on your main page.

Congrats on the safe trip! Nice to keep an eye on things. I'm so jealous :)

BTW, don't offer to barter too much - it means to trade things, so they'll expect you to give them your hat or something ;)

Have a great time!

-Daniel
