What's up happy people!

A week ago I arrived here, time is flying. Let me give you an idea of what's going on here:

Been to the beach everyday but one
Sunburned-not once, not never
Bus pass used to the full extent
2 bubble tea escapades
best pho I've ever tasted (aside from the homemade pho at Lan's house)

Sara says I look sedated in this photo. No arguments here-I was extremely happy for this occasion. Who would blame me!
We've been on quite a number of field trips so far. First we visited the mission houses, where the first Christian missionaries to Hawaii lived and set up camp. Friday we hiked Diamond Head which was great! Such a beautiful view. I think I could stare for hours! The next day we took the bus over to Ala Moana shopping center and tried some ethnic foods. We bought mochi and spring rolls and shared them, then I had to go try the pho. In the photo above you can see an unidentifiable soda can. This, my friends, was grass jelly drink- honey flavor. It was delicious! Sort of like bubble tea, in the aspect that there a squishy things hanging out inside waiting to be enjoyed. From now on I'm asking the cashier to recommend me a delicious treat, it was a great success!
Pearl Harbor was our destination the next day, but the boat taking people out to the Arizona Memorial was not in service. We checked out the museum instead, and a submarine! Yesterday we went to Fort DeRussy, and learned about everything military related within the Hawaiian islands. I was a little freaked out at times, little Tyty is going to be heading off in that direction of life soon. We love you!

I'm sure I could go on and on, but I'll leave you with that. Enjoy whatever weather conditions you are falling victim too. I wish you were all here to experience these great times with me. Friends and family: I LOVE YOU and can't wait to see you soon.
Also! My application to Spain was turned in this week!! please if you will pray, think good thoughts, cross your fingers or throw some salt over your right shoulder for me I'd be forever grateful :)
