    Cris and Karl started dating during the covid lockdown in 2020, so i asked them about what that was like.

    We also talk about La Gordoloba, a very cool community garden that started as a squat, which i’ve been visiting often during my time here.

    Jeanne Johnston in Oahu

    Jeanne Johnston in Oahu

    fintan lives with cousin Jeanne Johnston in Oahu.

    Jeanne was born in Hilo, Hawai’i. At age 6 she survived a 7.4 magnitude tsunami, which catalyzed a lifelong passion of telling the stories of tsunami survivors. In 1996 she co-founded the Pacific Tsunami Museum in Hilo. Jeanne has held all sorts of wild jobs: working in pineapple and fish canneries, as a flight attendant for Western Airlines, a first mate on a fishing boat in the Bering Sea, and as a chef on a research vessel that sailed around the world (narrowly avoiding a pirate attack).

    Jeanne now lives in Kailua, Oahu with her daughter and grandkids and works for FEMA as a disaster mitigation specialist.
