Sugar press
Kaz with an old sugar press at 'The Molokai Museum"
Also known as the Moloka‘i Museum and Cultural Center,
this place gives a fascinating overview of the whole island,
from how to process sugar cane to Fr. Damien and the leper colony.

Erika pretends to be one of the animals that powered the press.

Two spiders in the doorway, one top center,
