Somewhere over the Pacific Ocean
Hey, this is strange. I just spent the 2nd of February in South Korea. Left in the evening and arrive Honolulu in the morning, still on the 2nd of February. Not bad when you can live the same day twice.

I landed in Honolulu in the morning, but did not get the welcome I had expected. It was raining, like in pouring down! It´s supposed to be sunny in Hawaii. We arrived at something that seemed to be a remote terminal. After waiting 40 minutes for a shuttle bus, the imigaration itself went fast. And THEN, I was met by Aloha_Keith. He was waiting for me with a beautiful lei and took me to my hotel. How generous of him. The welcome to Honolulu was not bad at all!

It kept on raining until way after noon so I went to Ala Moana Mall. Nice place with lots of shops and restaurants. Since I love sushi I just had to have lunch at Genki Sushi.

When it stopped raining I went down to the Ala Moana Beach Park for a walk. My first day in Honolulu ended early as I was till suffering from jetlag (11 hour time difference from Norway).
