Hula lessons at the hotel
As we arrived at the hotel, there were two demonstrations going on. One being a pineapple cutting/tasting session. The chef was showing how to properly cut and serve the Maui Gold pineapple. He explained how to choose a fresh pineapple based on its weight. I personally do not like pineapple, however Emilia made me try these and I must admit they were excellent. The chef said there is a huge difference between fresh and can pineapple. I agree.

The second demonstration was a hula dancing class. Emilia immediately jumped in to learn. The teacher was a very good...and pretty too! She showed Emilia the proper way to do the hula and other native dances. She was impressed with Emilia's technique. The lesson lasted about 20 minutes and at the end the chef gave Emilia a box of chocolate covered Macadamia nuts.
Lot more to the hula then what you think!

We spoke with the hula teacher after the lesson and learned that she has been dancing since the age of 2 and she can dance many different types, including hip hop! It was great to talk with her but we were tired from the long day and wanted to go crash in the hotel room.

After a nice little rest, we went back outside to get some dinner and went to a place across from the hotel called King's Village which is full or art type shops. There is a restaurant called Rock Island Cafe where we had a quick meal. The food was very good, overpriced but worth it considering the atmosphere.

We walked around Waikiki for a little and then went to bed, trying to get a little more used to the time change.
