A Day in the Lo'i Patch

After our rough and long journey yesterday, we started our day by getting up at 7 am. We left the house at 8 am to get breakfast, and at 9 am we met with two Kualoa Ranch employees who would introduce us to Hawaiian culture. Instead of just going over it theoretically, we decided to get active. We helped our two guides by working on a Lo’i Patch, an underground water stream in which they grow Tara, which is used for Poi, a traditional Hawaiian food. We helped by ripping out weeds from the muddy ground to let the taro thrive and grow. After three hours of a muddy activity, we were all happy to get food for lunch. We ended our first day with a movie tour through the Kualoa Ranch, where movies like Jurassic Park and Godzilla were filmed. A beautiful mountain area was waiting for us.
