Luau and Polynesian Cultural Centre
November 8, 2012

This morning I had breakfast by myself on the beach. It was nice but I kind of missed the company. 
I returned to my room to get ready for the day.

While having lunch with Celia this little guy showed himself.

Crystal and I are catching the shuttle to Hilo Hattie's for some shopping this morning then we have a busy afternoon of events planned at the Polynesian Cultural Centre.

A sneak peak behind the scenes before the fire show.

The hula skirts are made with tea leaves. They take a lot to burn.

Practicing behind the scenes

The costumes are hung on a dry cleaner rack to easily access them. I believe there were over 1200 costumes.

The show is about to start. There's no more photography allowed.

After the show. Get ready to board the bus back to Honolulu. Sweet dreams!
