Man does not live on bread alone

I landed in Maui at about 9.30am but my hotel couldn't check me in until 1pm. So I took to wandering around Lahaina town to explore and also have an early lunch. I finally stopped in a little cafe at what looked to be the town's shopping centre with one cinema, called The Wharf.

Feeling completely in the mood, I ordered a rare alcoholic beverage to go with my grilled fish sandwich. Mango rum with iced tea. Mmm. It was heady stuff, and it slowly went to my head, as I sipped it slowly and enjoyed the view, while an old Pacific Islander stood outside on a grass patch, intermmitedly playing incohereng songs on his guitar and preaching from a worn-looking bible. I was in a sleepy daze for the rest of the hot afternoon.
