MEETING LOCALS WHILE ON VACATION
Ruby emailed the following question:
My husband and I are planning to visit Hawaii next year. We are considering spending two weeks on Kauai. Our plans are to rent a cabin or house for a couple of weeks so we can cook and enjoy a relaxed vacation. While we will want to see the geological sites of the island, we also want to spend some time getting the know the people who live on the island. Any suggestions of what to do and where to go to meet people?
Jennifer recommends talking to everyone you meet, especially at the grocery store, public transportation, and big stores.
