Graveside Picnics

The Chinese cemetery in Makiki was a favorite place for us kids. Remember, we were poor and oranges were a luxury. We would leisurely stroll to Makiki (it was closer than Manoa) and sit by a grave and enjoy the oranges left there by relatives of the deceased.

I think we ate the oranges at the gravesite instead of taking them home out of respect for the dead. As for the peels, we took them with us. After all, we weren't litterbugs.
