Talking Kapa with Travel Guru Peter Greenberg

PGaWas interviewed for the Peter Greenberg Travel show for Aulani Resort and got to discuss kapa and the use of Hawaiian art at the Resort.  If you travel and dont know this man, you should definately check out his website.  I learned a ton of travel tips just in the 15 minutes I was waiting to go on!  As a long time reporter, broadcaster and world traveller he had some amazing stories to tell afterwards when I got to hang out with him, Joe Rohde, Mike Hyland and some other very cool folks at the `Ama`ama Restarurant at Aulani.  Peter does some pretty insane numbers tricks too haha
