The Search for Signs of Hawaiian Life

For Sunday, January 5, 2014


Wendell Ogitani, left, and wife Karen of Pearl City, and Anna and Mike Hinkley of Kaneohe found the Kauai sandwich shop in Cape Town in September during a tour of South Africa. When Nelson Mandela, South Africa’s anti-apartheid leader and former president, died Dec. 5, Wendell Ogi­tani said the trip took on a greater significance to the Hawaii travelers. “We got to experience the influence and appreciation of Mandela … while he was alive,” said Ogi­tani. “There were statues, buildings, streets named after him. He’s even on the currency.” And later, the momentous trip became part of the Ogi­ta­nis’ Christmas card.
