Day1: got up at 4am in Tampa to catch early flight to Phoenix. That leg went very smoothly. We are flying USAirway, a 4 hour flight.1 1/2wait then out six hr flight with arrival at 2:30. Seeing I just got over the flu my tummy has been a little shaky so stuck with ginger ale and crackers. Hoping to feel normal soon. I,'m wondering if I'm going to really be able to eat my way across Maui? Damn, I've been planning this for months!
We arrive and get our Thrifty car. The girl at the counter says she has a brand new impala for us. We thank her and go out and see an old Ford Fusion with dings and rims hanging off, hey wait a minute! I go back and ask, where's the new car u promised? She hems and haws and said sorry let me see what I can do. Well, 5 minutes later we get new car, much better.
We stop at Safeway in Kihei on way to Kamole sands . We get to condo and both of us disappointed. We get an older dingy unit. No central air and very dark inside. After this long trip not what you are hoping for. We go back to front desk and ask if he has anything newer and better? He scans his screen and says maybe this one. We go and look and no it's worse. We stick with first one and open all doors and windows,they have portable air condition in bedrooms and we crank those suckers. Time to open the vodka, that usually helps makes things a little better. I was right. After turning all the lights on, airing out the place, and 2 vodkas, life was looking pretty darn good! We showered and headed to Coconut fish cafe. Ok tummy , can you handle the 13 spices in the secret recipe! Success! I'm on my way to eating my way all around Maui! Time to head to our dingy condo and get some shut eye! We are zonked. Thank God I brought my sleeping pills!!!!good night all!
