Kauai is a wonderful place but to understand, you never will.



Kauai is a wonderful place but to understand, you never will.


The Kuhio highway in Kapa'a town on the Island of Kauai is not a hwy, it's called a highway but in reality is a two lane road with speed limit's of 25 mph.

 This will help explain the reason for so many contrarians  living on Kaua'i. When someone believes a two lane road as a highway, they also believe that Big Box stores are ma and pa enterprises, they believe that a vacational rental should be a tent on the beach, they believe a bike trail should be the trail a bike leaves and believe the superferry to be a gay man. because of this mis-understanding of words, and the pidgin english everything is misconstrude.

When ordering at a restaurant one may say, "give me dakine with dakine on dakine." which of course means give me a bacon, spam lettuce and tomotaoe sandwhich with poi on Taro bread.

To make things more complicated at the local gym, they do not let you shower nude, even in an  enclosed men and womens seperate quarters, they say it's only a rinse shower and  being naked in a shower is forbidden.

Even though it's in the locker room, there explanation is if they wanted to see nakedness they would go online and look it up. Kauai is a wonderful place but to understand, you never will.
