Letter to Rosalyn Hart
A new acquaintance at AOL.

September 17, 1991

Dear Rosalyn:

I'm very glad to hear from you and receive your letter. Well, I'm fine here on this little island in the Pacific. I was born here in Maui, but I settled in a country in Asia . I came back to Maui in '88 and I enjoyed life here 'til today. Maui is full of exotic places, and flora and fauna, but they're slowly being endangered from feral animals and human activity.

The view of the rising sun is a tourist attraction on top of the largest dormant volcano, Mt. Haleakala (House of the Sun). There's a legend behind this. Also, if you haven't seen the humpback whales, you'll be amazed form their songs and appearance from the warm waters of the Pacific. The whales migrate from the polar regions during the winter to Hawaii and goes back to the polar regions in the summer. The road to Hana is a breathtaking experience. You'll see the Seven Sacred Falls and enjoy swimming. Off the coast of South Mauiis Molokini, an extinct volcano where lots of tropical fishes can be found. The fishes are friendly and enjoy a snack of chips. Anyway, I hope you'll be here and enjoy island lifestyle. I am looking forwrd to meet you next summer, right? Don't worry, I'll not lose you because you'll be a special asset to me - a friend.

Yes, America Online is expensive. I enjoy loggin on to bulletin board systems locally and database networks such as Compuserve and AOL. I'll just have a time off at AOL for a while due to stacking usage charges. Like you, I enjoy writing letters and with the scribble of my pen, I can express myself where it opens my personalitty to the world and learn more about myself.

The County of Maui is grouped into three main islands, Maui, Molokai, and Lanai. I live in the island of Maui which you can say the main island because it is the center of government and commerce. Kahului is what I call the capital of Maui. United and Delta Airlines have routes to Kahului, Maui. Just ask your travel agent.

Regarding time in Hawaii compared to New Jersey, I'm not sure but I can tell you about times in L.A. compared to Honolulu. When it's 10 p.m. in L.A., it's 8 p.m. in Honolulu, a difference of two hours.

If you want tocall, call in the evenings around 10 p.m. (Hawaii Standard Time). If that's late for you, call anytime in the evenings or on weekends. Bueno (well), it'a now the time for me to park my pen. I'll c'ya later...and I'll be looking forward on receiving your response.
