The other day someone informed me that a Shaka with the palm facing forward is also how one makes a “Y” in American Sign Language. It got me thinking about shakas and Why. Literally, why shakas? and where did they come from? Wikipedia had a list of local legends and rumors, but even they won’t claim, with confidence, that any are valid. My favorite interpretation involved a man who lost the three middle fingers of his right hand while working at the Kahuku Sugar Mill. He was then shifted to guarding the sugar train, and his all-clear wave of thumb and pinkie is said to have evolved into the shaka as children imitated the gesture. . . Leave any awesome Shaka origin stories below if you got em! ⠀

I had a bit of trouble getting to my bead making class today and afterwards I was talking to another student, she was on clad 8 or 9 and doing amazing things. She wanted to know how I was getting back to my hotel and I said probably taxi to bus and then walking a bit (no big deal). Instead she offers to take me, in her car she asked if I was on a schedule, I said nope free as a bird for the rest of the day, so she drove me north to see the famous California Lighthouse. Her husband works for the major or Aruba and is currently in Holland in a meeting with the King.... She was bored and I was lucky. She showed me a quarter of the island and dropped me off at my hotel afterwards. We had brilliant conversations and I am reminded that this is what solo traveling is all about. ❤ #aruba2017#solotravel#fun#happy#instagram#instapassport#travelgram#traveling#adventure#islandlove
