If you ask for directions in Hawaii chances are you might be told one of two things…makai or mauka.
Makai means, “towards the sea”.
Mauka means, “towards the mountains”.
This actually works in other areas as well.
In Key West it would be towards Duval Street or towards the jail.
In Oklahoma it would mean towards the funnel cloud or towards the dust storm.
In Charlotte it would mean towards the rioters or towards the police line.
In Pennsylvania it means towards the gloom and fog or just kill me now so I don’t have to spend another day in this shithole state.
