Epithets.

Where is the land of the Kukalahale rain? Where is the land of the fragrant bowers (of hala) [na paia aala]? What is the place known for its calm seas [ke kai malino]? What place is known for the hills Pili and Kalahikiola that travel together [na puu haele lua]?

What are some other descriptions you know that are traditionally used to honor or perhaps dishonor a certain place?
