Ha ha...so uhh change of plans, we are currently in Honolulu, Hawaii at Chloe Teller's house (a friend of Arum).  Basically our passports somehow got lost in the mail on their way back from the Chinese embassy getting visas.  So on Wednesday, the day before our intended departure to Asia, we still did not have any passports, so obviously could not be leaving the country.  But of course we didn't want this to ruin our big Asia adventure!..so we came up with a back-up plan.  First we needed to report our passports as lost or stolen and then apply for a new passport.  The fastest way to get new passports is to go to one of 13 passport agencies in the U.

S. and one is in Honolulu, HI!  So we figured that while we wait for our new passports, we might as well go someplace cool too!  And of course I've always wanted to go to Hawaii so this is great!!  The only bad thing is that we've lost a lot of money, in the loss of both our passports which already had chinese and vietnamese visas on them, all of which we have to pay for over again and go through the process again. 

But anyway, we arrived here to Hawaii today and have spent some of the day seeing Waikiki and eating ice cream with Chloe.  Tomorrow we have an appointment with the passport agency to get our new passports, and if all goes well, we hope to be off to Tokyo and then to Korea by Tuesday.  So that gives us a few days to spend here on Oa'hu which is totally great!  Please do pray for our whole passport situation, maybe by some miracle we will recover our original passports by tomorrow morning so we can save ourselves the money and hassle of getting new visas and passports. 

Anway that is all for now, we will update you on our Hawaiian adventure soon!

-Love Arum
