Well, not only do Spaniards have a hankering for things Hawaiian/Tiki but Hawaiians appear to have a hankering for things Spanish...such as the Coochie Coochie Girl herself, Charo (and who can blame them )!

from http://www.aloha.net/~mahalo/charo/letter.html . . .

Dear Friends,
My name is Charo. I was born in Murcia, Spain . . .

I wish I could be with you at this moment, but in a way I am, because the Internet carries the words to my songs, my love for you and my message to people throughout the world.

Love forever,

Charo

Back of my closet door? C'mon man, that image is from one of my many life-size Charo murals that adorn the ceiling and walls of my bedroom!

If you have ever seen her live,
you wish you were dead.
Cause now you have seen it all!!

14 years ago I was staying in Hanalei during the winter and it rained for a week solid and the bridge was flooded so we were stuck. the town is small and there was not a whole lot of food so we all had to go to Charos for Army Rations. I went back a few years after that and visited for old time sake and the food still tasted like army rations. The coconuts that were floating down the streets tasted better than their food! Charos? Blahh!
