A photographic journal of images from O'ahu by Dana, Jamie and Kala! =)

This is not exactly a "pretty" image but I decided to take a picture of this street for several reasons - Aside from the fact that this is my daily morning route to the University, this area is considered the "oldest little business town" on O'ahu and has managed to preserve some of its original shops while drawing in new ones. Incidentally, there's more places to eat per square feet in this are than in Waikiki - not to mention, probably cheaper as well. This area is frequented mainly by locals so if you are visiting the islands, park the car, and enjoy a piece of the island history and mingle with the kama'aina =)
Along this mile long stretch of road (and not far from Waikiki), you can find all types of business including a Brazilian shop, a variety of ethnic foods including Vietnamese, Mexican, Italian, Korean, Chinese and American, just to name a few, as well as a $1 movie theatre, Yoga studio, bead/jewelry making store, Coffee shop (no Starbucks!), cell phone shop, automotive repair, barber shop, schools, churches yadayada - you get the idea.
