Aloha Friday

Posted for Videoblogging Week 2006. To end the work week, I talk a bit about the history and popularity of "aloha wear," and survey some of the fashion of downtown Honolulu. Thanks to vlogger Roxanne of Beach Walks with Rox for suggesting today's topic.

Music is "Lagoon (Baba)" from Gravity by Artemis (Magnatune).

Interesting look into a culture I am unfamiliar with and how different cultures inspire and inject themselves onto other cultures, creating something new. Thankyou, Ryan
