Who says Hawaii is only for the white sand beaches? If you think this way, you will totally miss the great history behind this beautiful tropical island. When you go to the heart of the city, you will behold old architectures that are of British style. And who could have imagined that I was able to step and see the beauty of the Iolani Palace? Yes! It is a palace and it is only here in Hawaii among the other states where there a palace is built. And today, Ate Apple and I spent the rest of our afternoon (after shopping from Ross, which is 5 minutes away from this wonderful place) taking photos of the historical site.
The Iolani Palace is the "official residence of the Hawaiian Kingdom's last two monarchs--King Kalakaua, who built the palace in 1882, and his sister successor, Queen Lili'uokalani." (http://www.iolanipalace.org/)
I am having fun goofing out while Ate Apple is so concentrated on her modeling skils. ^_^
