Thank you, Baldev, for your humanity to a stranger, for this book, your passion for your own home in Upcountry, and especially, for sharing your own written words.  I am moved.


Eight days following our return, the Sunday Travel Section in the LA Times featured sacred Upcountry.  In Maliko Gulch, a former garbage dump, ancient pictographs were identified on the cliffs. The current owners and a relative of Hawaiian royalty vow to revitalize, preserve and share the hidden beauty beneath the banyan. 


The old and the new have emerged in Upcountry, bound by a gratitude for unique history, people and environment.  I will return for more aloha.
