Default Re: Paul Theroux on Hawaii: "So uncooperative, so complex in its division"

Theroux says he has lived here for over two decades, yet he hasn't developed relationships that would enable him to ask his friends for the answers he seeks regarding the culture. People are reticent to share the culture if they don't believe you want to genuinely embrace the culture. His attitude is somewhat like, "Perform for me and I'll throw you a fish."
