Downtown Honolulu

Walks in the financial district, city center and Chinatown.

Morning has broken, and we’re out and about, looking for new things to discover.
That’s not new, but Bouganvillea plants are growing here in such abundance, weedy even, that it needs to be noticed.
Waikiki from the Ala wai canal.
Long Morning shadows.
First mural of the day.
Just a plain street view.
Colourful garage door.
Then a very thick masalada smell overcomes us and we need to line up for almost 2 hours to satisfy the sweet hunger.
Waiting for so long lets creativity run wild.
Others have thought the same I guess.
Somebody mentioned the line is an hour shorter when they open lol
A tree. If someone knows what kind, text me.
Time for us to trolley to the CBD.
Pointedly positioned between the state capitol building and ʻIolani Palace is a life-size bronze statue of Queen Liliʻuokalani, Hawaii’s last reigning monarch. She holds a copy of the Hawaiian constitution she wrote in 1893 in an attempt to strengthen Hawaiian rule; ‘Aloha ʻOe,’ a popular song she composed; and kumulipo, the traditional Hawaiian chant of creation.
Old and new.
Street next to the old palace.
