If you get the chance to walk through, you’ll notice how beautiful the woods are inside Iolani Palace. There’s a richness in every room. From the dark floors to the banisters and doors, the cedar, koa, and kamani woods work together to enhance the atmosphere. Personally, I found myself in awe of the quality of the craftsmanship. A picture can’t do the palace justice, but at least it lets me share the experience to a some degree. In this photo you can see the electric lights that King Kalākaua had installed five years after construction had been completed.
I started out as a skip tracer. Just in case you don’t know, that’s the guy who finds the people who don’t want to be found. It was the little things—getting paid to lie—that made skip tracing the fun part of the job.
Those years of chasing deadbeats taught me many valuable life lessons, such as liars come from all walks of life, and always keep your car in the garage.
