a walk through chinatown, and...

posted on: 6.28.2012

A thank you.

I do so love the quiet of the North Shore.  
The intimacy with the land and the sea that goes so naturally hand in hand with living in the sweet Hawaiian country.  


But sometimes I crave the hustle and bustle of the city streets, ya know?  


And that is how, on a perfectly good beachy Saturday afternoon we found ourselves on the streets of Chinatown.



One of the sweetest things about living on O'ahu is the city.  There is something magical about downtown Honolulu.  Oh, it certainly is not a New York City city but we do have the tall buildings and busy streets and ooh, ooh, ooh our Chinatown.







































Oh you guys,
Honolulu's Chinatown district is alive with restaurants and music and art galleries and the very sweetest of little shops.  And this weekend the art galleries and music venues will be celebrating that creativity with Find ART, a festival for the senses.


And you can Eat The Street Friday starting at four when a whole heap of lunch wagons will roll up and offer yumminess to the downtown crowds.  Shall we go together, you and I, and shall we  try EVERYthing like good tourists should?

live sweet,
n


About that "thank you"... 
You have to know guys that I am oh so protective of this space we are creating here.  A silly combination of our home internet going kapoowy and of pressing deadlines has meant I have not been able to add some of the personal touches I would have liked to this week's posts.  
Thank you for being you and for being here and... for understanding.

  1. I miss Chinatown so much. I can taste the Thai Summer rolls. Oh, and Open Space Yoga, and the lei stands, and the art galleries, and. . . and . . . and . . . I do miss Chinatown. Thanks for bringing a little bit of it back to me.

  3. I love Chinatown too but I have to be in the mood for the city to go cruising it. I think that's because I live closer to town than you so it's boring and old for me haha. I would rather cruise Sunset beach and Haleiwa any day!!!

    Lovely photos and words as always Nicole. Honestly, you'd never know that your internet service hasn't been working well or that your page "lacked" any personal touches because your page is wonderful, mellow and as enjoyable to read as always!

  4. oooooh Chinatown is the BEST! Here in Seattle we've got a pretty large International District. No better place in our city to get the finest (and cheapest) local and hand made asian foods. I adore spending a Saturday afternoon perusing the outdoor market and spice shops.
    Thanks!
