parts of Waikiki I miss when watching from the web, aside from the weather,
are the little side streets, the small stuff you see when walking around
some of the older parts. I miss hearing what's going. What people are
saying on the street. The music coming out of a doorway. Or the smell
of food cooking or some garbage in an alleyway. To see slices of architecture
from its history, the 30's, 50's, 70's and today.
lunch I will sometimes check out the City and County traffic cams. I
will watch the intersection of Kalakaua and Kapahulu or Kuhio and Kaiulani.
I watch for my relative's cars and wonder what they are doing at the
moment. I jump over to the Dillingham and Kalihi intersection and watch
for the chicky truck.
the afternoon I will sometimes head over to surfing live and try to
hack into their feeds from the deck of Dukes on Waikiki beach. I refuse
a while I can't take it anymore and decide that its masochistic
to just be able to see shaky little pictures from there. But the next
morning I'm back watching the sunrise again. Wishing I was there, feeling
the warm trade winds for real.
