ZANA MOVED! i know i know... again. this time beautiful kalihi valley is lucky to have her. i cruised by for some zana kitchen time. i know, my *favorite!*
she didn't have her coffee maker yet so we got all caveman and shit
her back garden has this super rad portugese alter thingie... with a stuffed buffalo in it. gangsta!
we decided to take the drive up to the contemporary art museum to check out shepard fairey's project that's "in progress." have you been there? it's rad! you get an excuse to drive up tantalus...
and yes, here it is, my children. diamond head and waikiki. with a dash of UH on the side. woot.
of course, neither one of us has been able to make it to the museum until today. so we got to share a few u-turns and the like. if you've never been there, make sure you ask me for directions first, k?
um, ya.... some nice shots in the garden and such but they're gone. fuck. well just imagine.
