1976 GHU's Waikiki postcard -Sep.22

Waikiki International Market Place postcard -mailed 1976.  Captioned: INTERNATIONAL MARKETPLACE. Here one can find products of Polynesia, the Orient, and all over the world.  Artifacts, art treasures, jewelry, paintings, and clothing are only a few products the shops offer.  Fine restaurants offer a wide variety of food.

12:10 P.M. [Sept. 22, 1976] Leaving H. after a nice week.  We ate supper in a very nice resta. here Mon. evening. Yesterday no time for writing.  We left the hotel early to attend a Free Kodak program which proved very good.  Hawaiian dances & song.  People in line were told to make room for w chair party & a Ko. man placed us right near to the announcer & guests.  When program was 1/2 over introductions, etc. was given & a Lei was given to me with a kiss & then rain.  The program tried to go on but we left & soon the raindrops really came down.  Roberta parked me under a huge Bandan tree & went to pick up the car she had rented for then we were to go to Ito's to get pineapple & tickets for Polynesian program at night.  He said he could get them Free.  $6.75 each.  We were disappointed in that program but the grounds, etc. were worth the trip.  Also visited Mormon temple.  The 2 girls that R. met went with us & pd 1/2 expenses.  Love, Mother

[P.S.] Lunch - Broiled steak, roll, green beans, salad, cr. puff.  Have arrived in San D.  Catherine & G. met us, all fine.
