A good way to start the New Year is to reflect on the great times in 2013, which included a trip to Hawaii, a long stay in Hawaii Kai, and a visit to Punahou school, one of the oldest  in the nation and located in Honolulu. And famous for its lily pond, which included this beauty riding high above the muddy water and surrounding leaves.

Beautiful lily in a beautiful place.

We managed to do a little sightseeing over the few days we were in Bangkok but unfortunately my wife got sick, like real sick, like we should probably go the the hospital sick but lets foolishly stay in our room instead sick. Thankfully she came right in the end but it put a cloud over Bangkok, a city I know we should have loved a lot more than we did.
