to Rosalyn Hart
A new acquaintance at AOL.
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
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.
