being a tourist
People used to commercial stuff and not much anything real.
The guy next to me is a surf photographer who actually took the photos he was selling. Each photo came with a story - as he was chatting with the people looking at his photos, he was telling about it, and it was the BEST shop talk ever.
I don't think that these "tourists" even noticed or understood that.
The tourists were local people but also a lot of actual tourists. It is kinda easy to tell who doesn't live in Hawaii - they do have that "shopping mall" look and walk, they are bored and need to be entertained, they are nervous, they are in a hurry, they drive fast. That's why HI cars have stickers "slow down, this ain't the mainland". For someone from a fast big city like LA, HI is sloooooooooooooow.
