Final Thought…
Downtown Honolulu is busy in different ways. During business hours, King and Bishop Streets are alive with foot and vehicular traffic and nonstop activity. At night, it is also quite busy, but with a very different type of traffic and activity – the spiritual type. One area in particular, at the corner of Richards and Merchant Streets, is extremely active, some would even say, haunted. We will give you the spooktacular details on the next “What School You Went?” audio podcast.
