The building of Hawaii's State Council was magnificent, with the State Emblem hanging in the middle of the main entrance, which had the words 1959 on it. That year Hawaii became a state of the United States of America. The building has a strong tropical style, a corridor courtyard, a spacious patio, you can see the blue sky and white clouds. The building is surrounded by tall palm trees. According to the information, the eight huge pillars supporting the building symbolize the eight major islands of Hawaii, surrounded by pools, and symbolize the vast Pacific Ocean of Hawaii. There is a statue of FATHER DAMIEN in front of the building. We guess it must be a person of great importance to the state of Hawaii. Later, it was found on the Internet that this statue of Damien, a respected Belgian priest, was forced to exile to Molokai Island, Hawaii, in 1866. He devoted his life to the care of leprosy patients and was regarded as the most loyal friend by the Hawaiian people. On the other side of the building, the statue of Queen LILILIUOKLAUI, the last monarch of Hawaii, faces the State Capitol Building with GIVEN WITH ALOHA BY THE PEOPLE OF HAWAII written below. It means the people of Hawaii greet you. ALOHA Aloha is the most common greeting in Hawaii, and we learned it when we traveled in Honolulu. A simple word, including hello, thank you, welcome, goodbye, I love you and so on, can be used in any occasion. On both sides of the first floor is the conference hall. One is SENATE and the other is HOUSE OF REPRESENTITIVES. The latter is open, with the American flag and the Hawaiian flag in the middle. There are rows of semicircular seats with computers on each table. Staff members introduced that upper-level seats were open to the public. We see seats for wheelchair residents. When we went, the meeting on that day came to an end. The staff said that there would be a meeting at 12 o'clock tomorrow. Welcome to the audience. Upstairs is the office, each room has a sign at the door, indicating the name of the members and the area they represent. At that time, I saw a woman holding a sign and shouting loudly, as if asking the MP to respond to a case.
Downtown Honolulu has some of the most historic sites on Oahu Island. There are some important landmarks beside the skyscrapers in the main business district, such as Iolani Palace of the Iolani Palace, the statue of King Kamehameha I, Kawaiahao Church and Aloha Tower of Kawaiahahao. The area is also home to the Hawaii government, Hawaii State Capitol, the Hawaii State Capitol, the Governor's residence at Washington Place, and Honolulu City Hall, Honolululu Hall. These buildings are adjacent to each other and gather in several blocks. They can easily visit these important cultural landmarks and architectural wonders on foot.
To the east of Chinatown is next to Finance Street, and then to the East is State Capitol and Iolani Palace. We slipped off and took our car back for dinner. Tonight we had a buffet, about 20 knives a person, with a drink. The most interesting thing in the food was boiling snow crab legs and steak. We felt worse than eating 20 dishes by foreigners. In fact, this restaurant belongs to one of the hotels. Part, beside ROSS and WALMART, parking is more convenient and near WAIKIKI. It is worth recommending, especially for those who have big stomachs.
