Waipio Valley
October 12, 2005

We pronounce the name of this valley four different ways... the Kansas way, the San Diego way, the ignorant way (mine) and the right way (why pee oh). You could infer from this that "we" don't pronounce it properly and you would be correct. Regardless, it has a rich history and is one of the last truly native areas left in Hawaii. Hanalei, a umpteen generation Hawaiian native,  drove us through the valley in a 4 wheel drive van and gave one of the most interesting and opinionated tours I've ever taken, anyplace, anytime, anywhere.
