Kino Road = Body Road

I learned something interesting about the name of the road we live on, and actually all of the roads in Kalaheo.  They are all (or at least mostly) named after body parts.  Personally, I think that is kind of a strange theme to use when deciding road names.  Kino means "body" in Hawaiian which is off of Puuwai road which means "heart"... here are a few other names of the roads in our area...

Kikala = hip
Papalina = cheek
Maka = eye
Alelo = tongue
Iwi = bone

Interesting right?  How would you like to live on tongue road?  Or bone road?  To me, the road names sound nicer in Hawaiian than in English!
