Living in Kailua-Kona, the dry west side of the Big Island is in total contrast to extreme wet southeast Puna district. It is almost living in a different country.
 



Living in Kailua-Kona 

Subba Rao 

Living in Kailua-Kona on the Leeward side of the Big Island 

Hot and dry sometimes with volcanic gasses flowing from the nearby
volcano 

Everyday 75◦F ±5 

Rain never in the forecast 

Ali'i Drive runs north and south along the sea wall 

At the south end was Keauhou shopping center 

At the north end Courtyard King Kamehameha's beach, the calmest tiny
beach on the island 

In between south and north ends, crowded magic white sand beach and
Kahaluu beach known for tide-pools 

Bougainvillea, Plumeria and Hibiscus are common sight and so as
spectacular sun sets along the sea wall 

Big waves constantly crash onto the sea wall spreading mist around
Restaurants and gift shops galore on either side of Ali'i drive 

Bucket full of Boat Trash is best on the menu at Babba's Gump seafood
restaurant 

Huggo's on the Rock is good for steaks. 

Island Lava Java always crowded more for scenery than food 

Thai Rin serves good Thai food 

Lulu's eat, swill and chill 

Bongo Ben's Island Cafe 

Humpy's Big Island Alehouse 

Fish Hopper, Falafel World and Killer Fish Taco are good eateries to
visit 

ABC stores are like Seven Elevens stores 

Tourists walking up and down along the sea wall with wow expression at
the crashing waves taking photos 

Japanese tourists walk cautiously with curious look 

Jolly good tourists from mainland always looking for good place to eat 

Petite women perform Hula dance moving slowly for Polynesian music 

Sitting on the sea wall a man regularly weaves hats with coconut leaves
to sell. 

Another man makes walking sticks out of tree limbs. 

A woman with lost mind walks fast collecting waste paper as precious was
a sad sight 

Hippies with their pet dogs following were always looking for free smoke


A heavy set scantily clothed six-foot brown skin man slowly walks up and
down along the sea wall holding a brass cross with his hand stretched 
out seeking something 

Kona coffee grown at a farm owned by the granddaughter of Ferrari auto
magnet is sold for $20 per pound at a roadside kiosk
