Thanks for the heads up! Good to know for people coming to visit soon.

Speaking of presidents, we will forever remember the time we first visited Hawaii and were so excited to be in the island where Obama grew up and tracked down his holiday house in Kailua and his favourite Sandy Beach. Then we ran into him in New York on Broadway (ok more like saw them from 100 meters afar knee deep in Secret Service) and here at home during the Summit a few years ago. The energy from everyone lining the streets from that visit (despite the 38 degree Celcius heat we endured) was just so remarkable.

Sorry for the off-topic convo. Carry on...

I was thinking the same Coco - being HALTED (!) by the Secret Service as I was crossing in front of the Modern. The Obamas were leaving dinner at _____. Blanking at the name of the Japanese restaurant that used to by there. Lots of cheering!

But I was also caught in the traffic the next day as the President went to one part of the Island and Mama Obama to another. No way to avoid the traffic and people we just hemmed in at all sides.

BLBL it was Morimoto's.......

Now relocated to the Alohilani.

Hopefully the Trump visit will be just a refueling and leg-stretching stop, which are very common when the Pres or VP are going to/returning from Asia.

For the old timers, the very best was when VP Dan Quayle stopped over late one evening and they enticed him out of the plane for a news interview.

He had obviously just woke up and gave hilarious, incoherent answers that cemented his reputation as a dunderhead.

I don't know if I'd hold my breath on that one. Pretty sure last time there was a particular plan that would've been less traffic hassle for everybody here and then it got changed at the last minute...
