So D was checking out the vegetarian options at our hotel restaurant (not that we have arrived in Hawaii yet. We're leaving Saturday). Sadly it is meat-and-fish dominated...but it's not that sad...because it's Hawaii! I'm sure they'll be flexible. The hotel offers a "grocery shopping service," has a really good-looking breakfast, and there is an Indian restaurant nearby (I was surprised).

I was thinking back to stories I have heard of Hawaii. I did yoga teacher training in 2005, and my "yoga buddy" was from Hawaii. She was pregnant at age 19 or so and her parents kicked her off their island. So she went to another island. She told me stories of how she breastfed other people's babies. Also, I remembered that Obama is from Hawaii. But I don't know which island.

I'm looking forward to hearing what you experience in Hawaii. The hotel where we usually stay has a lot of food choices for their Japanese guests but I don't know about vegetarian. There are many farmer's markets on the Big Island but I'm not sure about Maui.
I believe Obama lived on Oahu.

That makes sense - I think it's the most populated island. I read that there is an unpopulated island right near Maui.

Kahoolawe has no permanent residents and is seven miles from Maui. There is no fresh water on the island.
