I try a translation: "The tourist tries to discover the other and the strangers in a teporarily figuration, to assure oneself of the own identity and authenticy."
So far it did not work to discover many strangers willing to talk a lot or even staying around long enough to study those. I decided to go on an exploration to the neighbor island Kauai to search for the foreign. But I guess sitting by the fire and philosophize brought me closer to my idea of self. As well do postcards I recieve from friends. (Thanks again P. & M.) I get closer to what I am here and what I want to do in my Second Life, well actually in the Second Life. I miss people here on Oahu....they come and go, travel fastly, globalized. Maybe another category of visitors are lovers, as there is a lot to do here for couples. So I guess in Second Life as in Real life love seems to matter a lot to the residents.
Kauai Island is just a short flight or sail away from Oahu and after I tried some relaxation on Oahu first I, went over to explore the landscape.

This fourth day is a lot about view. A change in perspective enables sometimes a change in thoughts as well.
Arriving at Kauai I discovered a canyon...definetly a way to different views...
|Go girl...said who? ;-)|
I heard birds sing and parrots scream and that made my mind wander...
|Even parrots come in couples here...|
|Great view after crossing the canyon|
|Definetly a nice place to hang...|
|...with friends...too many empty seats, even if I enjoy being on my own often.|
|Limbo dancing is more fun in a crowd as well...|
|And drinking alone makes no sense at all.|
|The highest point of Kauai...silence, fitting loneliness!|
|On top of a lighthouse....flying bird....rotary thoughts.|
