I've lived on Maui so long now that I often lose sight of how truly magnificent this island paradise is. It takes showing a malahini (newcomer) like my friend, Francesco, the sights to open my own eyes. Today I took him on a hike through the lava fields to a local snorkel spot popularly known as the Aquarium. While I was steadfastly fixed on my goal of tropical fish, Francesco stopped at one of the anchialine pools we passed to marvel at the unusual colors.

Of course, he was thrilled by the abundance of colorful tropical fish as well. Like yesterday, I often heard the sincere "Fantastic!" from him. Maui truly is no ka oi.
