We went to a Luau at the Royal Kona resort. It was so much fun! They unearthed a pig that was cooking in an earth oven all day, and it was so tender that it just fell apart. It is called Kahlua pork (spelling could be wrong here). Besides that, there was so much food, and it was all wonderful. We tasted poi, the starchy staple of the Hawaiian people (tasted very bland, and had the consistency of baby food, but was OK mixed with other stuff). Lomi lomi salmon, which is raw and delicious, chicken in coconut and spinich sauce, beef, another cooked fish that was also delicious......I can't remember the rest. What a feast!

And the entertainment was very well done. Dances representing many of the Polynesian islands were performed by both men and women. It was fantastic. We arrived very early so we could get a good seat, and were able to sit right at the front of the stage. Take a look at the pictures.
