Things I Wrote in my Travel Journal

  1. Ning's Thai restaurant in Pahoa has really incredible pineapple curry
  2. My roommate is still home for winter break so I haven't met her yet. I think she's a freshman from O'ahu.
  3. If she comes back before I finish moving in she's going to think I'm a crazy person
  4. I can't remember the last time I saw a sea turtle in the wild
  5. or black sand
  6. Nothing has AC here because nothing needs it. Open windows and fans do the trick
  7. I can't wait to meet my professors
  8. I can't wait to start working out again
  9. The people here are absolutely amazing. Everyone I have encountered so far will go out of their way to help someone else.
  10. Hilo is rainy, local, rocky, new, lush, tropical
