While on this cruise a strange coincidence occurred; the date that Brigitte was to be sworn in as a US citizen (a date that had to be postponed because of this trip) she won a valuable framed folded US flag in a raffle. Furthermore, Brigitte came to America in 1959, the year Hawaii joined the Union, and although unplanned it now seems fitting that the year she became a US citizen also included this trip to Hawaii. In Honolulu we visited Shozo Noda, a friend we have known since the sixties. He moved from the land of the rising sun to the island of the setting sun. Appropriately, we enjoyed a sunset when we had dinner with the Noda's.
