Day 283 : ka pi’apa

Sandy: In the early 1800s, a Hawaiian alphabet was adapted from the English alphabet to enable the (darn) American missionaries to print a bible in the Hawaiian language. Eighteen official letters are in the current Hawaiian alphabet – 5 normal vowels plus 5 vowels with Macrons to differentiate long from short vowels, 8 consonants including an ‘okina. It starts to get complicated when the diphthongs are added. 

Sandy’s year long journey – going from being a right-hander to left-hander, and Kelly’s parallel trip as a left-hander doing things as a right-hander.
