Why Christopher Peralta left Hawaii

“I left Honolulu in 2009 because I was working three jobs and had nothing much to show for it. My home was a cinder block apartment with jalousies and my ride was a moped. I was working just to pay off the essentials: rent, bills, groceries and gas. Any savings I earned were easily swept away. I had time for friends and surf, which I miss the most, but even that couldn’t keep me in the city. My move to Oregon was simply a financial one.”
