Hawaii vacation. Day 2

Why do people go to Waikiki? I guess it would be fair to assume they mostly go there for the sea.
That was the case with us too.
So after waking up pretty early (6 hours time difference helping with that) we proceeded straight to the beach without even having a breakfast.

In the morning there were significantly less people on the beach, but on the other hand the sun did not quite rise from behind all the high-rises either, so the beach was in a shade still.

Anyway we quickly jumped into the relatively warm water.


Hawaii vacation. Day 1

Finally we got some time to shuffle through our Hawaii vacation photos from end of August.

By the end of August we were in real need of some real vacation. Several places were discussed, amongst them were Hawaii, Florida, Mexico and Puerto Rico. We decided on Hawaii to avoid hurricane season on Atlantic shores.
The plan was to check Oahu for a week-long vacation and decide if Hawaii were worth it at all, and to return later for other islands if so.

Of course soon after we got our tickets I decided to check weather forecast for Honolulu and sure enough it said there would be rain every day. In the end that proved to be irrelevant. Rain on Hawaii is nothing like rain pretty much anywhere else.

And so on August 22, 2009 we boarded our plane and departed. After boring 8 hours (most of which we strategically spent sleeping) finally something showed up in the window.


Review of Urd and World of Elegance Gathering kit from E2046

It's pretty sad that figure producers tend to concentrate on sexy girls often over-emphasizing their sexiness and throw in so much fan-service it is almost unbearable.
The best developed Anime characters barely get produced and sometimes all the loyal fans get is a garage kit.

So was the story with "Urd and World of Elegance" from "Ah! My goddess". The best version was a garage kit from Hiromen that is impossible to find at that.
As it often happens, E2046 decided to help and came with their own version of this kit, also available prepainted from Gathering.
