Diamond Head

Diamond Head is a crater like formation in Hawaii on the island of Oahu. According to Wikipedia it is a volcanic tuff cone.


To me it resembled and felt like a crater.  I had never visited the place the entire time I lived on Oahu which ended up being 7 years. When I went for a visit the hike up Diamond Head became my only form of work out. The natural air, the wind in my hair and face, the bus ride to Kapiolani Community College, then the walk up to Diamond Head proper before one started to hike up the crater.


I hiked up that crater three times a week. It was good for my heart rate.



Good for my sweat glands. Good for my walking step counts. Good for the beauty once you got to the head of Diamond Head. The view picturesque as you saw the entire Honolulu down-town, parts of Waikiki and the surf.

The hike is unique because it has dark tunnels, open trails, hikes up many stairs right before you get to the summit to see the breath-taking view of Honolulu City. If you ever do visit Honolulu or Waikiki I do suggest a hike up the Diamond Head trail.

It is good for the heart, soul, beauty and it is therapeutic. This is because of the picturesque views as well as being on top of one of the youngest volcanic set of Hawaii Islands.






In the beginning was the obstacle, then the challenge and voila the solution

I am an African male, that has lived on three continents, a resident of the United Kingdom and a native from Uganda. I am an Alumna of Hawaii Pacific University, Honolulu, Hawaii – USA and hold a Masters degree in Business Administration(MBA) concentration in Finance.

The reason I thought about writing this blog happens to be that doing my research to return home to Uganda, there wasn’t enough information in the cyberspace to help me prepare myself to the mine field I faced.

I found this improbable so decided to write a journal about various topics I witness and face because as a global nomad I realize my perception which is my reality is totally out of sync with those of my sisters and brothers from the motherland Uganda.

Enjoy the maze that I find myself in as I go around moving from one obstacle to a challenge and getting that aha moment with a solution.

Karibu (Welcome on board). Fasten your seat belts and join me on this journey.
