Aloha at Upolu airport

An Aloha greeting is mown into the grass at Upolu Airport

This Aloha greeting, mown into the grass at the end of Upolu Airport’s runway, greets arriving aircraft. At this time of year, it’s also traditional for the grounds crew to mow the words “Mele Kalikimaka & Haouoli Makahiki Hou” into the grass bordering the runway. It means “Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”

I don’t have a photo of this because it’s only visible from the air, but here’s a link to the scene in 2016.
