Hi guys!!! In Fiji, since Nov 8th. Adrienne meet me at the airport with a "greeter" and a taxi to to take us to our "bure"...hut!! Hahaha We stayed 2 days and meet the most awesome English couple..Emily, Stuart, their 2 children Cassie and Nelson!! We went to a village mud bath and a hot spring, ...then we ate pizza..Mama's Pizza...We then rented a car and drove to the other side of the island to Natovi Landing and caught a "dive" boat for a resort and went to Naigani Island and stayed overnight with a true Fijian village family! This was incredible!! We brought gifts for the village chief, kava, for him, and sugar and flour for our family. We had a "Kava Ceremoy" and were accepted into the village!! We now have a Fijian family!! Today, we came back to the landing, per a fishing boat, ( and no puking!!) and drove just beyond Sigatoka to a resort. Oh....This morning, while on the island, we hiked up to a fort on the Naigani hill island where 200 years ago the last tribe of village people lived and were invaded and defeated. All is well. better if it would quit raining!!! Laurie ;D
