"Thompson has been in examining oral histories the records of Captain Cook and the accomplishments of the Polynesian voyaging society. All to investigate what it can tell us about how we view the world. Today she pieces together the navigation puzzle of sailors and settlers in her book. See People Christina. Welcome thanks for having me. So when when we think of Polynesia talk about how big it is and what it has in common culturally so Polynesia is the area that is inside of this triangle we'll formed by Hawaii in the North New Zealand in the southwest and Easter Island in the southeast. It's an area of about ten million square miles and it smack in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and it happens that all the people who live on the islands in this area which is the island's that people have heard of like Tahiti or saw more or maybe the mark cases they all share a common cultural heritage. They all speak related languages and they have a similar genetic. Ming up no Christina. You say ten million square miles and originally they were not populated by human beings at all so somehow people had to get there and there was no communication. People didn't right. They didn't have metal tools. They didn't have navigational devices that I can imagine. Can you just kind of paint a picture to the best that we can. We're were there caravans of canoes just going out into the unknown C or how did these islands become populated originally well. I think one thing we don't know is how many canoes necessarily sailed together but basically the idea is that you know some thousands of years ago over in what sometimes people call the island nursery Sirri of Southeast Asia in the islands around the Philippines and Indonesia and stuff people developed an outrigger. which is this thing that sticks out from the side of the canoe to keep it balanced to keep it from from tipping over and with the development of the outrigger people started to be able to make some longer distance? Voyages and the canoes the Polynesian sailed in were like Catamaran's they had to halls else and they were stable and they could carry a load of people and animals and so they started making longer and longer voyages. There's some again some thousands of years ago from this western side of the Pacific out further and further and further into the mid Pacific. But it must have been hit or miss because they didn't have maps. They didn't have radar. They didn't know where the islands were if they were islands. Do you think they were just kind of going toward the sunset and hoping to hit land now the sunrise is actually but they obviously looking for islands and the islands are what they call inter visible. You can see one from. I'm the other in the Western Pacific. A lot of them are. There's a big leap when they get past that point and they start to sail out to islands that you can't see so they're probably exploring hiring and looking for them they really were amazing navigators. They weren't sailing blinds. They understood how to go to one place and sail back from that place after. Remember where that place was and things like that. They must have been exploring but we don't really know how they found islands like the end of Hawaii. Which is the islands of Hawaii are very isolated in the North Pacific? How did they find them who knows because we have no written history people? Just build a raft. That was kind of like one of those early outriggers Imagining how they might have done it and just without knowing if they did it prove that they could have done it like those. Expeditions seemed to be part of science right right so the the earliest one was was to Harles kon-tiki raft which he he allowed to drift basically from the coast of South America and ended up in the middle of the Pacific on the tomatoes. And that was an kind of an early experiment in this vain but then in the nineteen seventies in Hawaii some people got together and decided to try and build a true replica vessel so a copy of what they imagined. An ancient Polynesian voyaging canoe would been like and they decided to try and sale it from Hawaii to Tahiti and back again and that was the beginning of what what is really kind of an experimental voyaging movement in Hawaii. And what was that expedition called. The ship was called Hokule'a it Okla has made an around the world voyage now but that was in two thousand sixteen I guess but between Nineteen Seventy in two thousand sixteen they have made voyages absolutely everywhere. They sailed to to Easter to New Zealand. All around the Pacific to the point is to prove that it could be done yet to show the voyaging capacity of the Polynesians basically to show that non instrumental. Navigation vacation is really a thing and that people can go very long distances using it. You know that it's a real technique. You said they sailed it. Is it drifting with the wind and the tides is it with a sale or is it paddling they have a sale. They have a steering paddle but they sail. What were the very first contact with European society like in the Polynesian World? Some of them were violent. Some of them were not. We don't have any idea what the markes ins thought of men Donya when he arrived Zeppelin we know record of it and what I mean. There's the record of the Spanish but we don't really know for sure what archaisms thought There was a little bit of that I think. In some cases there it was all in some cases there was fear in some cases. There was something that you might call. Greed greed Westerners. No on the part of the I mean I. I think that a lot of islanders actually looked at these ships once they realized kind of what was going on and who these people were they actually wanted the ships. There are definitely stories of ambushes. Did they have some kind of A religious context again in the case of the conquistadors from Spain I mean in their religion I understand. It was on this certain year. A man on a horse you know was going to come and on that certain year the man on the horse with the beard came just like their scripture said and they disfigured this must be divided and they laid down their weapons and was there any kind of dimension of that local cultural religion with the arrival of the first Europeans pins or was it the opposite The story of Cook's arrival in Hawaii is kind of like that story that he arrived during a festival in he seemed to be the embodiment of the deity. Who was being celebrated in the Festival because switches to happen that he arrived at that time? I think that that added to the confusion of cooks experience. AGREEANCE cook was killed in Hawaii. That was where he died. And it was not long after this encounter during this festival period and I think it added to sort of chaos and confusion that he had Iraq during that a period. This is travel with. Rick Steves talking with Christina Thompson. Her book is see people the Puzzle of Polynesia and we're talking about early explorers of the Pacific both before the Europeans arrived and after so captain cook arrived and they thought. Oh It's a festival in here comes God and then things went sour and they killed killed them. Tell us a little more about that. So what happened. Is that Cook. He went up north to Alaska and then or the Northwest Pacific and then he came down and when he came down he was looking for a place to rest his crew and he sort of hit the island of Maui and then he went east so he sailed all the way around the big island before he found a place to come to rest his crew and that meant that he was sailing in his ship all the way slowly because against the wind all the way around the big island for quite a while and so when he arrived the legend of Lono the God that he sort of seemed to be representing was that Leno passed around the island in the same. I'm way he was represented as carrying a staff with White Tapa cloth on it which is sort of like the the ship to mass in their sales so just a lot of things lined up kind of strangely initially and then what happened was he. They went through all this festival these festivals and celebrations and then Cook sailed away and that should have been the end of it he should have just sailed away that would be fine but his mast broke just offshore and he had to return and when he returned he wasn't supposed to return according to the legends. He wasn't supposed to come back until the next year. So people were confused by that and then there was an altercation. He died in the clash not long after he returned.
Live From The HIBT Summit: Kevin Systrom & Mike Krieger Of Instagram
"It's guy here so today we're releasing another live interview from this year's how I built this summit which happened this past Stober in San Francisco and this one's my conversation with Kevin System and Mike Krieger. The CO founders of instagram. And if you haven't heard their original podcast episode you should definitely go back and give it a listen in that episode. They talk about the stumbled on the idea of using filters for photo sharing and how in just two years. There's they got nearly thirty million dollars and then sold to facebook for a billion dollars. They spent six more years there and then both of them stepped down twenty eighteen and so when we sat down together at the summit peers the question I was thinking of after you launch one of the most successful APPs in the world. What do you do next first? Let's talk about the last year. It's been about a year since you left as it been a little bit weird because you had a staff in this team and his company when you were coming into work every day and then. There's a day where you don't do that. Yeah I think the first readjustment is all of a sudden like you do have a weight off your shoulders because the site is in down. There isn't a decision to be made every single second and you're able to sort of step back and reflect but what you touched on is really true as well which is one you missed the people you work with right like. That's the thing that is really notable as well but also your leverage is totally gone so if we have an idea now or we want to get something done like go and do and by ourselves which is also an exciting like hands on kind of moment as well. But that's I think the most notable sort of Oh okay now we're now in different place. Now Yeah I think if you look at the companies that have been around now for a while in Silicon Valley you run it and and there are people running it and you look around and like there's the system on that supports everything. It just goes every day. You've got your your monthly check INS. You've got your weekly staff meetings and you just know what your schedule is going to be. And everything has this enormous momentum or a nurse. I don't know which one is. which but you know what I mean Scott and and then you get out of it and you realize that life no longer has that inertia or that momentum will look this up later and but would you would you realize oh my God I have to be a beginner again? And that's thrilling. It can be scary depending on like your personality type it can be either either terrifying or it can be thrilling. And I decided I was going to learn to fly. That was going to be my thing when I left work I just I wanted to take a a few months which it turns out is not enough time to learn to fly. I did it though we can get into that so I took a few months and I said I wanted to learn to fly and I was so frustrated by the fact that I like sucked like I just sucked. It's like an work. I knew exactly what I needed to do. And I I mean it's not that I was great at it all all the time but like I knew what to do but when you do something new for the first time you're like wait. I have to like read a book and I have to go through all this and it's it's it was thrilling to know that life is going to be full of a lot of these chapters. If we do it right there's GonNa be a beginner over and over and over again and what's great is if you're a beginner and you have a partner while you're a beginner because then when you make a mistake someone can pick you up from. NBC Like Yeah. That was a mistake. But let's keep going. You know I remember you. Telling among the sort of the origin story of instagram started his bourbon as a check in APP. And then I think an in your girlfriend then wife was. You know you're on vacation occasion. And he took the photo and then this sort of light bulb moment where you guys that. Well maybe this is the thing it should be and you built it into this huge platform and and and your identities are so wrapped into it. Right we've had stories of the show where founders have sold their companies or David. David Neal was pushed out of jet blue. He was here earlier today. it's hard. I mean even if you're paid well and you get the payout. It's it's a thing. Thank you mate. It's yours is a part of it part of that hard. I thought about this a ton and like say like the year before our departure. Sure you start thinking about. I tell the very openly like every year you know I would sit down on like sort of recommit to instagram and so am I still. Learning is still exciting. I still feel like I can have impact Or is it time for the next chapter and the question. I would often get from friends that would be like. Aren't you worried like you're not going to be important after instagram. Like in so many awards but basically asking that question and you realize a couple of things one is the legacy lives on and like the fact that I get to use the product and people still come up to me and are like oh you built. This Is Awesome and I realized I had gotten attached to being co founder and CTO and always get to be co founder and that feels really good starting conversations and having people be excited about something that we he built. So I think that the identity feels solid and the other part. is you kind of realize like who's excited to spend time with you for what you've built in what you're interested in and the people who who just wanted to get verified or whatever they're like never had last fees disappointed. Judging from my answer. I'm direct box. People have not gotten the message that we've left but you know it's a transition moment was actually like a you're jumping off the cliff's edge and you're trusting that like there's something on the other side that will I feel really good but I was also kind of scared like wake you up and everyone's like. Oh yeah you're like you're not important anymore. He's out there Kevin. You're quota at the time last year you said you you don't leave a job because everything is awesome right. And I'm I'm curious. Why why did you leave? Because you know you don't leave everything's awesome. Sorry I'm just I'm reflecting on that line okay. So a couple a couple of things one is we sold the company in two thousand twelve. Yep and everyone thought that we were done like I remember seeing people on the street and they were like what are you up to now. I was like running instagram. They're like why you sold the company. I was like. Yeah but like we really love it. Here's what most people don't realize. Once you sell a company Anthony like if you still love it you still want to run it so it was six years of grinding to get this thing off the ground you know we sold and was how many million users may thirty or forty million users and we got it to you over a billion yeah. It took lots of time and that is like so. I was just in Hawaii the other day. I guess what you do when you don't have a job but I'm I'm standing there on the side of the road. It was on the Big Island and I'm watching. The ironman happened and these throngs of people are coming by on their bikes in their wet suits and everything and their speedy bikes and they have to bike. I don't even know how many miles I think it's like over one hundred miles. Then they have to do a marathon and then they have to do a swim or I guess it's swim bike. Run so you have to order wrong. But Ah that's what instagram's like but in business and you get to the end of the proverbial and and you say to yourself. Wow we've been through a lot but do I want to go more. No like I'm done. I just did a marathon and I just did one hundred whatever miles. That's why I think we ended up leaving because you want a little break in recovery time and then my south is such that. I'm excited about doing something new. Like I'm just like I'm always on into some new idea and I don't know probably won't be as big as instagram. But it'll be just as exciting to me and that's why you end up leaving. Not just because of the bad that stuff but because it's really hard and you need this regeneration time to do something. There was a really interesting quote in wired about the two of you. Basically said social media properties can be like nightclubs there cool while the cool people are there and they disappear without leaving a trace. Kevin and Mike are Smart enough and cool enough to know. You should never be the last person to leave the party now. Essentially with this article was saying that you sort of saw saw the social media landscape and maybe you thought you know. This isn't really what we signed up for. Is there any truth to that. That was not a big factor for me like I think in fact like it was weighing on me in the opposite direction like I remember when like early last year are so before we really thinking seriously about leaving. I sat down with some folks. And they're like I hope you stay for a long time because I can tell you really care about kindness really care about building a positive network and we really need that so please stay. Which added this whole guilt factor for me for the next like a few months? We started thinking about leaving so I saw it less like you know the tightest changing changing. Therefore it's time for us to leave and in fact it was like the other side like oh like maybe not to sound conceited but maybe this is one we could be most needed. That was definitely a the fact that I weighed when thinking about the
Why Are Macadamia Nuts So Expensive?
"First things first macadamia nuts are not actually ups. Yes I know it's ridiculous. It's right there in the main for goodness sake but much like Brazil L.. Nuts again what is it with. These misleading names. The Macadamia is in fact a seed and although they've become a signature staple of Hawaiian Agriculture Macadamia. His are actually native to Australia. We spoke with Glen Soko an economic development specialist with the Hawaii County Department of Research and development he explained leaned Macadamia. Nuts are originally from Australia but much of the early research breeding work quality development were done by the University of Hawaii on the island of Hawaii. These cultivars are suited for the Hawaii. Climate and do not produce the same high quality nut when grown in foreign conditions cultivars is short for cultivated varieties and these are specific types of plants selected and cultivated by humans. In this case. The plant is a large bushy tree that starts producing macadamia nuts spy the time. It's about four or five years old. So how exactly did these Australia cultivars and up in Hawaii for that you can think. One William Purvis office. Who planted the first Macadamia tree on the Big Island in eighteen? Eighty one purpose didn't initially intend for the tree seeds to be a hit. He planted the trees as wind breaks as for the sugar cane fields. The plants were functional and also happens to be quite pretty but he didn't suspect they could bear such delectable and profitable. See it's about a decade later. One are Jordan planted some macadamia trees on Oahu. The trees that researchers think is the ancestor most of Hawaii's trees and the not quickly became a popular snack among businessmen who came to Hawaii to profit off of sugar plantations in the early nineteen hundreds. The Hawaiian Agricultural Experiment Station was established published to get new crops growing on islands since this newly established United States territory was relying almost exclusively on sugar following the collapse of the coffee market. In the nineteen twenties. The government offered a five year tax exemption on land that was used solely for Macadamia production. But most farmers were interested. That is until roasted it. BECA Damian that's started popping up in stores and consumers went wild demand finance went up and the number of trees planted for nut production more than doubled from nineteen eighteen thirty two to nineteen thirty. Eight sales slumped a bit after that. But by the Nineteen Fifties Hawaii was turning out macadamia goodies to stack fans throughout the world and major companies. Ladies were making a pretty penny off of them speaking of why are Macadamia so expensive while Macadamia is clearly have an interesting past. And they've tastes taste heavenly coated in thick layers of chocolate. Do they really merit they're often exorbitant price tag after all around twenty five dollars a pound. They're considered the most expensive have nuts in the world. So what's the deal. A bunch of factors go into the price but a lot of them. Come down to the fact that Macadamia can't be grown effectively. On the continental dental United States and shipping them in from Hawaii is costly and growing things in Hawaii is costly to begin with because it's a small archipelago that some three thousand miles title. That's nearly five thousand kilometers away from anything in two thousand. Eighteen Macadamia has made the news for a seventeen percent price. Increase which sacco attributed to Hawaii's fixed harvest acreage and a higher global demand. Furthermore Issaquah said it takes seven years for a Macadamia nut tree to produce a crop. Demand remains high and prices are up to a dollar twenty per pound despite this. There's tremendous pressure on the industry. The agricultural labor shortage continues and that's caused wages and benefit costs to increase invasive. Pests continue to affect the Orchard Health and production. The Hawaii land prices are so high. Hi Orchard Expansion is too costly and producers can't wait for seven years therefore the production acreage remained steady despite the increased demand for the nuts. Okay so that explains the cost but are they actually good for you. High fat foods used to be the most demonized of all kitchen staples basically because of a very effective and sort of insidious marketing campaign put out by the sugar industry but thanks to current research and slightly Leila systemic marketing hype such things as nuts oils and seeds are getting their due as healthy options.

"In down a couple cocktails. Excellent. Well, and you mentioned festivals that leads us into the best time of year to come to the big island? Yeah. So one interesting about the big island is compared to most tropical places. There's not a distinct wet and dry season like, see, let's say in Indonesia or Thailand or something. And so you can really go at any time of year because the rain is going to be more or less consistent and the temperature doesn't change much between the summer or winter. So what I would recommend is looking for the least expensive times which in my experiences generally been October the time between thanksgiving and mid December after everyone's done their thanksgiving trip before they do their Christmas trip right after. New Year's and in the time between spring break and the end of the school year silk mid April to early may. All those times are generally a couple hundred dollars less expensive in terms of airfare. Yeah, we should say that it's really driven more by winner. People fleeing the winter or winter. They have summer vacations or spring vacations than the big island being particularly nicer in one part of the year than the other. But then best days of the year.

But if you happen to be lucky to be there when the Mary Mara festivals going on back and give you an authentic experience that I can see at other times of the year. And is that Mary as an EMMY are y? Yes. Okay. I didn't think there was a monarch of Hawaii named Mary, so I was pretty sure that that's what we're talking about here. Excellent. Anything else that people need to know before they pack their bags and head to the big island? A lot of people get the idea of having a rental car. That's a convertible. And maybe if you're on the west side of Maui, great, I would not recommend that on the big island unless you're staying completely on the west side and even then purity go down to that area near captain cook, it can. It can get quite a bit of rain there as well. So I would not recommend a convertible. And in fact, if you can find one that's got rain, sensing, wipers, I would say that's good because the storms come and go, and you can go from no rain to downpour and right back again in forty five seconds. So having a new rental car with some rain sensing, wipers could really save you a lot of headaches because the last thing you need when you're dealing with a car that. You are not used to is having to fiddle with the wipers constantly when we should say that is true for all of the islands that have some altitude to them. So Maui, the big island Kawai and awas who all have a rainier NA drier part of the island Lonie less. So I think Melika he also does and the the wetter tending to be north and northeast depending a little bit on the island and the dryer, the leeward part of the island. So the trade winds blowing from northeast to southwest. So the rest is south Parsons, the Ellen being dryer. So again, that's why he said, if you're on the west part of Maui, then you're in the the leeward part of the Maoist rain shadow. And then again, IRNA dryer area. So again, depending on which you're on the different portions of it have both a wet and the dry son. Excellent. As we get to our wrap up questions, I think you may have answered this already, but you're standing in the prettiest spot in the big island where he is standing on. What are you looking at. Like I said on a clear day, I would say your at the lookout for wipe e valley. But I would say the most reliably beautiful spot is actually spot that I haven't mentioned yet, which is on the old saddle road. So they re aligned the saddle road that goes across the middle of the island, maybe about four or five years ago. But the old part is is still a road. It's just not nearly as traveled now and it's a little south of the town of why mania more on the Kona side of the island. And there's a spot about halfway between where the old saddle road in the new Salle road four. And when the old saddle road hits highway one ninety, where if you stop there and get out of the car and look around on, you can see five all Kino's all at once. Just by looking around, you can see Monica, which is right next to you. You'd see Montel Loa you can see who all ally, which is about a nine thousand foot mountain. That's just above Kona. You can see. Co Hala which is the northern most volcano on the big island. And you can also see Holly Okla in Maui which is to the northwest from that spot. So it's kind of amazing thing to do a quick three sixty in NC five different volcanoes
"big island" Discussed on The Amateur Traveler Podcast
"The bags back on a roll. There and read, it's go real good pass board. Amateur, traveler episode, six hundred twenty nine today the amateur traveler talks about beaches and waterfalls and caves active volcanoes lava tubes, and at least one unpronounceable national historic site. As we go to the big island of Hawaii. Welcome to the amateur traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about the big island. I'd like to welcome to the show Justin Barnes from Justin and crystal dot com who's come to talk to us about the big island of Hawaii, just a welcome to the show. Thank you for having me in. Do you call it the big island or you call it? Hawaii because there's some confusion when one talks about why which is both estate ended Nyland. It's confusing in multiple regards because not only that half the people that I tell when I tell them I live on the big island, they assume I'm referring to wall who because that's the most populated island, but it's ninety percent of the population of away, but not the biggest island by far now. In fact, the region of the big island that I live in Poona which is just one ninth give or take the big island is actually bigger than the entire land of law, but has only maybe tens of thousands of people. And that's it. Yeah, no freeways on the big island of a Wii? No, real need for them. No. There's a couple. Main roads of one that goes around the north nineteen one that goes around the south, the eleven. And if you were to drive all the way around the island, it would take you give or take five hours. Seven. It is a very, very big island. Excellent. Well, why should someone go to Hawaii the big island? Well, one thing that's unique about the big island is that it has more diversity in one small place than about anywhere else on this planet. I don't think people appreciate how tall the to mountains that dominate the interior of the island are they're almost fourteen thousand feet in so you can have snow and sand on the same day, just step by driving up in back down the mountain. And so basically any type of climate that you wanna see, whether it be rainforest or desert or moonscape or everything in between. Can all be found on one island. All in eighty somewhat short drive will and when you say they're fourteen thousand feet or fourteen thousand feet above. Sea-level above the sea, but they extend down to the floor of the ocean. I believe at Motorola, Ramona k, I don't remember which ones bigger is the biggest mountain in the world by mass. Yes, it's not a low, and I think the ocean there is over twenty thousand feet deep and they don't know exactly how much the seafloor has been pushed down by Modelo. It could be the weight of it is actually pushed down the sea floor, ten thousand feet. It is by mass the biggest mountain on the on the planet. Cool. And what do you recommend or given the size of the island and the factors? No quote, unquote, central location. What generally I think would be good for people is to spend part of the the time on the west side, the Kylo Kona area. And the other part on the east side, the Hilo area. And in maybe depending on what is most interesting maybe spending some time in the UAE area or. Or the volcano area. But both of those are relatively straightforward day trips if you'd rather just stick to to hotel locations. Okay, will let's get started. Where are you going to start us out? So I was planning on starting in Hilo and in kind of going around clockwise from Hilo all the way round the island. Got it. Okay. I've done that trip. Yes. Well, I should say that for those who've you who are belong, timeless the show and you'd really have to be a very long time listener. The show we have done episode on the big island, but I think it's been twelve years. So it was about time to update it for one thing. There's more of the big island than there used to be twelve years ago. It is literally changing as we speak because it is a site of active of Keno. Yes, it actually went off in my neighborhood a couple of months ago. I live about eight blocks from where the volcano erupted and the coastline pushed out several hundred yards in some places in enforcing lay over seven hundred homes were lost over this summer. So it is one of those places where land is being made in in destroyed in in real time, and you can you can see before your eyes eight. It was. It's been an interesting couple of months. I'll leave it at that. Wow. Okay. Well, this last election has been much closer to Hilo than the previous ones or at least for a long time in terms of where it's coming out, I didn't realize it was that close. They'd been a houses. I should have figured that out. Okay, actually started in the middle of my neighborhood and then kind of fanned out going downhill towards the ocean and. About a third of my neighborhood was destroyed multiple neighborhoods in the Caputo area where there used to be similarly, lovely tide pools plus a really nice coastline. All of that unfortunately is is gone now as of late many early June, two thousand eighteen. Wow. Okay. So we're starting vacation there. Let's let's talk about safety. First of there's a reason why you're not running away from the island as fast as you can or flying or taking a boat away that there is some reason to believe that you are relatively safe there and that we should come. Yes. Yes. And to be clear the as of August of two thousand eighteen the the eruption has stopped. And in fact, one of the reasons that I thought it might be a good time to pitch the show is because over the summer, so many people understandably stopped visiting the island, but now that the eruption is stopped the gases from that have stopped. And there used to be a Wagner which was basically all the particles from the volcano that route would get blown by the wind over the west side of the island where most of the tourist resorts are gonna be this constant Hayes in now that's all gone. There's clear skies, nice sunsets. So for the first time in probably thirty five years, there hasn't been any active lava on surface for a couple of months now. Okay. So we're starting in the Hilo side. We're flying into the Hilo airport then theoretically, yes, and just be clear. There's two major airports on the island one in here. Hello, which if you're looking at a clock would be about three o'clock one Kona, which is at nine o'clock in generally there's more flights into Kona, but I, I would say if you're coming to visit and you have your choice of airports, just do some searching the sea, which ones less expensive in enthused that one. Because if you're just going around the island anyway, there's really no
