Went to the wholesale flower market. Flowers are imported and come to this area which is just a bunch of stalls with flowers everywhere. They are bought, taken away and sold. Children and women cutting up flowers. There are flower designs with petals in places. In both hotels we have both received leis when we arrived. The discarded flowers and stems are thrown in the middle of the road and tampled. Unsold flowers are dumped and then burned. Of course, flowers are sold on the street.
