Hawaii, paradise on earth – with lots of wind and rain and scorched earth :)
Big Island is a little different from what one might expect (not as many coconut trees and hula girls), but it is a very cool island.
Mauna Kea, at 4200 metres above sea level is host of the only site for Astronomers to watch all of the northern hemisphere
and almost all (85%) of the southern hemisphere, which is unique in the world. We went there as well to have a look at some stars and planets.
Saturn provided quite a show :)
Today we did nothing, exept a lot of driving, more or less once around the island (Big Island is in fact pretty big), oh, and some snorkeling
with sea turtles. Awesome ;)
Tomorrow we’ll go to the volcano state park, hope to provide some cool pictures of that as well…
