Trapped in Paradise
Join a 20+ year resident of Oahu as he goes around and explores the happenings and sights in Hawaii. Some podcasts will be dealing with local events some will be places. Some episodes will be geared towards residents and some geared towards tourists. In any case come along with me and enjoy the sights and sounds of a place that people save for a life time to visit for 10 days. I get to live here and need to enjoy it more.

Lets visit the Honolulu Academy of Arts Arts After Dark event. The last Friday of each month they have a different event. At this event the exhibit of Bhutanese Sacred objects are on display. Unfortunately, I was not allowed to video tape in any of the galleries. The show has monks from Bhutan who perform a cham with horns, drums and cymbals. In one gallery a monk was working on a mandalla. It was an incredible to watch the monk place grains of colored sand, a few at a time to make this beautiful pattern. In in outside area one monk was painting surfboards. Local restaurants come out and have specialty food available for sale For more information about the Honolulu Academy of Arts, goto their website at www.honoluluacademy.org
