In Praise of Tropical Weather

The Royal Poinciana tree. Its blossoms are so abundant, the petals that fall subsequently blanket the ground and make it a sea of red.

The Banyan Tree, whose roots eventually thicken and harden to resemble its trunk. This particular tree near the Kona Market seems to house at least a hundred birds, way up in its branches. Stand next to the tree and their chirping is deafening.

Bamboo may not be suited for the climate, but here's the next best thing, on the wall of a sushi place called Shioya.
