One of the things I like best in Kauai is the wonderful fruit, here including (clockwise from upper left) pineapple, apple bananas, starfruit surrounding peeled rambutan, and super-juicy tangelos that you have to eat over a plate, or better, the sink. The multi-colored mochi on the lower right and a cup of strong green tea round out one of my favorite breakfasts.
