|Kauai's sensuous hula|
Five million years ago a volcano burst from the ocean in a fiery rumbling of pyrotechnic explosions. A new island was born.
Kauai as it's known today was the first in a chain of volcanic islands destined to emerge over millenia. Drawn by all manner of dreams, settlers searching for a better life, missionaries intent upon conversion, tourists and travelers in pursuit of the ultimate destination have made their way to its shores. One of the latter, I was lured by the island's stunning natural beauty and the culture of a people who had courageously set out from the Marquesas centuries before in a quest for a land unknown.
