Per request from the CD, they wanted to see some sights of my hometown.
Hawaii has a special connection with China.
Dr. Sun Yet Sen (Father of China) lived here when he was a teenager.
It was here that he lived and learned western life and culture.
He won an award from the Hawaiian King Kalakaua for his English skills.
This insperation drove him to want change in his homeland China.

Manoa (Valley of the Kings) Dr. Sun went to school very close to this area

The overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii began with a coup d'état against Queen Liliuokalani on January 17, 1893 on the island of Oahu, by foreign residents residing in Honolulu, mostly United States citizens, and subjects of the Kingdom of Hawaii.[4] They prevailed upon American minister John L. Stevens to call in the U.S. Marines to protect American interests, an action that effectively buttressed the rebellion. The revolutionaries established the Republic of Hawaii, but their ultimate goal was the annexation of the islands to the United States, which finally occurred in 1898.
