Aloha Amigos, desde Waikiki!

El volcán Le'ahi, mundialmente conocido como 'Diamonh Head' o 'Cabeza de Diamante'. Ergue magnificente a uno de los costados de la bulliciosa y bella, Waikiki Beach, la zona hotelera y comercial de Honolulu.

DIAMOND HEAD: (en español:Cabeza de Diamante) es el nombre de una toba volcánica en la isla hawaiana de Oahu que los hawaianos conocen como Lēʻahi (fotografía de la derecha). El nombre en inglés se lo pusieron los marineros británicos durante el siglo XIX, que confundieron los cristales de calcita incrustados en la roca con diamantes. Se encuentra en la costa al este de Waikiki (en Honolulú).

Diamond Head is the name of a volcanic tuff cone on the Hawaiian island of Oʻahu and known to Hawaiians as Lēʻahi, most likely from lae 'browridge, promontory' plus ʻahi 'tuna' because the shape of the ridgeline resembles the shape of a tuna's dorsal fin.[1] Its English name was given by British sailors in the 19th century, who mistook calcite crystals embedded in the rock for diamonds.
