kauai and oahu

Without knowing a lot about the major Hawaiian islands, it's easy to see the contrast between Kauai and Oahu. One is quiet, lush, introverted. The other is bustling, paved, and puts itself out there.

Small communities of natives lived in the valleys on the west coast of Kauai for a long time, farming taro and making the long journey to more populated parts of the island to trade.
