I wanted to experience Hawaii as I knew it as a kid and I was transported back to my grandparents' place in Hilo. The walk downstairs to the bath house, no keys issued and even the archaic room rate. Only the invasion of coqui frogs which can be annoying was a more recent change. But I had earplugs! My trip coincided with Rohatsu and although it was voluntary, I sat for all four nights and it has made me resolve to sit with more regularity in Phoenix. Great breakfasts with a variety of tropical fruits and good conversation.
