Kahului, Maui (Hawaii) / USA West Coast
Maui is the second largest island of the Hawaiian archipelago and Kahului one of the fourth largest cities on Maui.Almost 120,000 inhabitants live on the island which because of its lush vegetation and the valleys created by severe erosion is also known as "The Valley Isle".
The Hawaiian natives developed their civilization in the course of thousands of years before they had contact with the western world.But then they came from all corners of the world, Chinese Japanese, Portuguese and Americans.
In the last century Mark Twain wrote quite entranced the following description of his vacation on Maui: "... I came for a week to Maui and then stayed five. I've never spent so pleasant a month and I was never so sorry to say goodbye. Not even once during this time did I think of shops, sorrows, human suffering, worry or distress ... and my memory of this period remains with me forever. "
Among the many attractions of the island are the Road to Hana, the road of curves, bridges and waterfalls, the Haleakala National Park, the ILO Valley, one of the most famous scenes of the battles of the kingdom of Hawai and the world-famous surfing areas in the north of Maui.
Everywhere you can see the traces of the Indians - in the food, crafts, customs, architecture, language, lifestyle ... but especially in the hospitality that you meet with.
