I took these shots last week. I sometimes forget that this place is like no other so I decided to skip the pretty scenery and take some shots of the man made scenery. The garage and grill is kind of cool. The busy area I ride through in the afternoon is called Waipahu. It is mostly Filipino. The island is a melting pot of culture but you find pockets concentrated ethnicities.

I am kind of surprised at all the flat and low pitched roofs.

Waipahu? Where's your favorite place for buying Balut?

I think that you have to travel to the Philipines to get that. For those of you who don't know what a balut is, please google it since it is close to the dinner hour for alot of viewers and I don't want to describe the process. You start with an egg, I will give you that much.

BALUT
I was thinking along the lines of 3 month to 5 year balutes, the kind they bury in the ground. I have never had the desire to be a blood eater.

Yup, you're referring to what they call the century egg and some traditionalists still bury them. Preserved in horse urine!! At least that myth still lives.

Well, some asian foods are not well known for their looks and smell..the durian fruit, kimchi and add dinuguan (Pork blood stew) to the mix.

They sure don't have to worry about snow.

A couple of degrees of slope with a lot of tar and gravel are enough for rain.

In some ways it sure looks like a really wealthy 3rd world country.

I do miss the food-even the blood stew.

Three "foods" to politely but firmly decline if offered by a Filipino:

1. Balut (partially developed boiled duck egg)
2. Aso (dog)
3. Bagoong (salted, fermented fish)

That does look like an interesting place to ride.
