Work keeps sending me to Hawaii. [Waiting for sympathy.]
Anyway, I flew out Monday, have two days of meetings, and will fly back Thursday. So far it’s going swimmingly. Because of the relatively late notice of the trip and the bizarre decision-making process of my team leader, we are lodging at the Ko Olina (which, weirdly, accepts the standard government rates). On the plus side, the resort itself is pretty swanky. On the minus side, everything is extraordinarily expensive and it’s swarming with tourists and (worse) pandering pseudo-Hawaiian touristy activities.
[Lest you forget, dear reader (singular) my ideal lodging for a vacation getaway is rather more like this. The prime amenity is the lack of cell phone coverage.]
But again on the plus side, beach sunset two minutes from my room.
