Getting around Honolulu, Oahu ...

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties RS-47693

Travellers tip for newcomers driving around Oahu:  If you forget to pick up a handy pidgin english dictionary (the local dialect that is grammatically patterned after several Asian languages), remember at least these four words to get around the island:  Mauka, Makai, Ewa and Diamond Head.  With your back to the mountains (mauka) look towards the ocean (makai) and you will be given directions based on geographical landmarks such as Diamond Head (east) and Ewa (west).

Hi Chuck!  Hope you have a fun time and visit more than one island.  You can even take the superferry to Maui. :)

P.S.  Our street names mostly begin with K... and can be long... Remember to pronounce almost every vowel like a Native Indian language.  Try this one:  humuhumunukunukuapuaa!
