Hawaii's Plantation Village, 5/11/21

Thank you Erick Tsukiyama for arranging this outing. It sure is good to be retired.

Here is a link to their website Hawaii's Plantation Village

Eyes of Hawaii, Erick Tsukiyama arranged this outing. We were separated into 2 groups with tour guides Michi and Robert

Since I took photos with my Canon 6T, 80D and my iPhone 12, my photos got jumbled up. I did number the photos above. The rest are in random order.

This is the Filipino game "Mancala", I recognized it because I would play the modern version with the students at Nuuanu Elementary.

I forgot to take a photo of the wages: I think it was $3.00 a day for 5 years.

This is how they filtered water.

An Eyes of Hawaii photo outing includes eating afterwards. This is in Waipahu and is "the preferred Chinese restaurant in the area" according to their website. Due to the pandemic, we could not eat inside but we were fortunate that in front of their Smoothie store there was a tent with 3 tables.

Kudos Erick, I know we all enjoyed this outing and learned a lot about the history of the many ethnic groups that worked at this Sugar plantation. I also now understand what "Manager's Drive" means.
