Do not stop thinking about those days. . and I promised myself I’ll be back with the intention of living there.
Non smetto di pensare  a quei giorni. .e l’ho promesso a me che tornerò con l’intento di vivere li.

 Pu`uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park is a really mystical and fascinating place: everything lies on an ancient lava flow, the rocks are black as coal, the beach is as white as paper, a backdrop of black lava and an intense color sea.

Pu`uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park è un posto veramente mistico, e  suggestivo: tutto è adagiato su una colata lavica antica, le rocce sono nere come il carbone, la spiaggia è bianca come la carta, il fondale nero di lava ed un mare dal colore intensissimo.

 Inside the park, the remains of a sacred area that once provided shelter to anyone who was the victim of a kapu (curse) that ensured the physical and spiritual salvation.

All’interno del parco, i resti di un’area sacra che anticamente forniva rifugio a chiunque fosse rimasto vittima di un kapu (maledizione) che gli garantiva la salvezza fisica e spirituale.

Just imagine how this could appear to harbor a fugitive who ran through the dense bush with the heart in his throat and enemies at his heels in a desperate attempt to reach the gods and save his life..

Provate a immaginare come poteva apparire questo rifugio a un fuggitivo che attraversava la fitta boscaglia con il cuore in gola e i nemici alle calcagna nel disperato tentativo di raggiungere gli dèi e salvarsi la vita..

 In the park (still considered protected as sacred) there are thatched huts, where even today canoe builders, carvers and artisans are here to create their works.

Nel parco (protetto in quanto considerato ancora sacro) ci sono capanne dal tetto di paglia, dove ancora oggi costruttori di canoe, intagliatori di legno e artigiani vengono qui a creare le loro opere.

I still felt the spirit of peace and forgiveness that continues to surround and bless this place special..
Ho sentito ancora lo spirito di pace e di perdono che continua ancora oggi a circondare e benedire questo luogo speciale..

I wear:
American Apparel T-shirt,
Brandy & Melville Skirt and Necklace,
Tosphop studded ballerinas.
