"Why not just enjoy the fresh air?.."

Before I moved to Hawaii and used to visit every February from Alaska, I was always fascinated when exiting and arriving inside the opened walled terminals at Honolulu International airport, with the wonderful smells of the plumeria flowers mixed with fresh air.

Now that I am a resident of 12 years in Hawaii, I still enjoy the fresh ocean air with the smell of tropical flowers.

Ironically most restaurants, retail stores, public transportation and office buildings all run air conditioning at the coldest possible settings. We have some of the freshest and best smelling air in the world and most people choose to breathe recycled cold air.

When I lived in Alaska everyone always wanted to have the heat on high and in Hawai'i everyone wants the air conditioning on the coldest possible setting.

People always want want what they don't have, why not just enjoy the fresh air...

I never thought Hawaii was really that HOT, that you'd need much air conditioning. Maybe in the summer its way hot?

The irony is it's really not that hot, however in September when there are no trade winds it's hot but not unbearable...but everyone seems to like their AC none the less.
