So, Hawai'i is the 50th and most recent state of the U.S. and the most "exotic" place I've ever been to. an asterisk means something of interest to Zoochatters. THE FLIGHT THERE I wake up early in my bedroom, surrounded by stuffed animals and my blobby doggo. It's flight day. Today, we will be heading to Newark to begin our flight to Hawai'i. I am tired, but I manage to slip into my day clothes (and by the way, this was like 5 in the morning). My dad had ordered an Uber to come drive us to the airport, so we jam our stuff in the trunk of the car, and lucky me not only gets to take some of the sourest pills I've ever had (to increase my immune system's power), but I get to sit in the middle. Not the best place to sit. Anyway, the guy who drove us was a nice DJ who had been all over the world, just thought I should mention that. Soon, we arrive at the airport, and we walk towards the gate. I sit down, play some Smash Bros. on my Switch and get breakfast (a hearty, buttery Auntie Anne's pretzel). Anyway, we start boarding the plane pretty soon and guess what, AN 11 HOUR FLIGHT! This was the longest flight I've ever been on, and you might think well if you're flying that far you might as well get something with lots of leg room but you'd be W R O N G. I won't bore you with the details, but I watched 2 Hotel Transylvania movies as well as watching the same 4 episodes of Bob's Burgers over and over again. THE FIRST DAY Once we arrive in Honolulu, the capital of Hawai'i and one of the 2 main cities of the archipelago. We are pooped, so we check into the hotel room (which had some of the most uncomfortable beds I've ever sat in) and head out for dinner at a local grocery store. I obtain a croissant turkey sandwich which I narf down extremely quickly. After that I watch a small amount of the Office and fall asleep. THE SECOND DAY* The second day begins with me waking up and heading to a local breakfast place, M.A.C, which had some delicious pasta which I ingested extremely quickly, and we walk over to the... HONOLULU ZOO! Honolulu Zoo is the largest zoo in Hawai'i and is a hotly debated topic by many people, including animal rights groups. Our zoo trip begins with looking at a pot. Ebirah, you might say, Why is this of interesting, I say SHUT UP I'M TALKING. This pot is filled with water and has a group of tadpoles. Tadpoles. Baby frogs, so that begins our trip. Anyway, soon we see a pond filled with all sorts of ducks, including the rare Laysan teal. On the left, a row of aviaries makes up the zoo's tropical bird exhibits. Highlights include birds of paradise, iguanas, and hornbills. (I'll upload the full thing soon). The tropical bird exhibit houses a wide variety of amazing species native to all parts of the world, and even though it doesn't house many ABC species, it does house some extremely rare species that are difficult to find in the wild. The next exhibit is the nene sanctuary. Honolulu Zoo is essential for conservation of their native habitats, and one of those living in their native habitats is the nene. They are a rare species that can only be found in the Hawaiian Islands. You might think what is a nene? A nene is a species of goose that can only be found on the Hawaiian Islands, and seeing them here is a real treat for Zoochatters, as they are a difficult species to find in captivity. The next part of the trip is the Sumatran tiger exhibit. Me and my family enjoyed watching the charismatic creature squanter around its exhibit and interact with a keeper. The exhibit was of a decent size, though it was partitioned due to another cat species in the area (We'll look at that soon enough) I am tired of typing so much in one go, so tomorrow I will upload more of the zoo journey to this thread.
