We went out to some sketchy village restaurant in China and I had "seafood" soup. I kept asking what was in it and they were adamant that it was "seafood". When I looked into the pot and saw red eared slider shells, I had to laugh. "Seafood", eh?

But then I had a little sad because we used to have pet turtles. But then I had more soup because, damn that was good.

Lets see big island...

Wednesday:
Took a quick 30 minute 5am flight from HNL to KOA.
Picked up rental Jeep.
Ate at a really shitty place with really shitty corned beef hash.
Drove down to "Two Step" and snorkeled with spinner dolphins.
Drove down to South Point and jumped in to the ocean.
Off-roaded it to Green Sand Beach.
Drove all the way to Hilo thinking we'd just chill there until we could drive up to Mauna Kea. But the road up to the summit remained closed due to ice/snow and 88mph winds. Was closed my entire trip to the big island. (reopened on Monday)
Ate some pizza and wings at Pizza Hawaii & Deli
Ended up crashing at a shitty hotel in Hilo. $80/night for Reeds Bay Resort Hotel.

Thursday:
Rolled out of the hotel around 10am.
Ate at Kens House of Pancakes, got their corned beef hash with pancakes (much much better corned beef hash)
Went to Rainbow Falls, went to the top of the water fall, took pictures and explored around.
Drove down to Kehena Black Sand Beach, which turns out is a nude beach... thought i'd have to poke my eyes out, but hot damn!
Drove to Kalapana and picked up bicycle rentals.
Rode all the way in over the lava fields and tiny houses towards Kamakuna and the firehose. Hiked around over the lava fields trying to find exposed lava to poke with a stick. Wandered around till it was dark but couldn't find anything so we went to the lava viewing point and watched the firehose. Awesome.
Drove all the way back to Hilo, had a quick bite of chicken wings, nachos and beer at Hilo Town Tavern. (was the only place still opened) Listened to some guys stand up which made fun of asians. Then the DJ came on played house music. Chilled with some locals.
Drove to Kolekole Gulch Park. Camped over night.

Friday:
Woke up around 9am.
Went to Akaka falls, nice to look at. But meh because I wish I could've hiked to the top instead of looking at it with a bajillion Korean tourists.
Drove along the 19 towards Waimea.
Ate at Hawaiian Style Cafe. Got their daily special Loco Moco which uses fresh beef instead of frozen beef. (or so the waitress says)
Drove to beach 69 and oogled at the chicks at the beach.
Drove back to Two Step to try and find some Honu to snorkel with. unsuccessful.
Packed up all our camping gear and shit for our flight.
Took a 1 hour earlier flight from KOA back to HNL.

That about sums it up. lots of fun
