On Hawaii it actually rains quite a lot, not strong, but quite often a little bit. The more you get into the mountains the rainier it is. When you lay on the beach and look into the mountain you really want to pack your stuff together and search for a dry place. But here it is completely different: You can lay in the bright sun and watch the darkest and biggest clouds ever without being afraid of getting wet.
The mountains are like rainforest and downtown and Waikiki is city with desert-feeling on the beach.
Here are some pictures I took last weekend on the northshore. I really hoped there were bigger waves, but unfortunately the sea was flat.... The waves seemed to have moved to Waikiki. That´s the reason why I will go surfing the whole weekend ;-)
That are my two "roomies" and friends Eva (left) and Judith (right). When I return to Sweden I hopefully be as dark as Judith. Unfortunately she will leave on Monday, flying back to Germany. I am already sad :-(
"In da car": It is so great to know people with a car. You can really see something of the island. This evening Scott will pick us up and we will go to the movies watching "Pirates of the Caribbean" which actually should be a nice feeling being in a comparable surrounding :D
