I've been on Maui for about a week now, and it is nice. I'm staying in Lahaina, near the Mala Wharf. You can find it online. There are quite a few other boats here, but sadly, few of them are in sailing condition. The tourism industry here is very permeating, and everyone seems to drive a rental car. I tried to hitch hike to get mom at the airport a week ago and was not picked up for nearly an hour. It was a little irksome, but not too much, since there is a bus and I could have taken it. The water is super clear. Dad has now arrived, he will stay for 12 days and then Abe and Katrina are coming. So I have a full docket here in Maui. I've taken some pictures from some places, but they will have to wait for a better connection, I think.
