One last night in Fiji and then we're off to New Zealand. Had lots of great diving in the Somosomo straight just off from Taveuni. Amazing all the soft coral there, although of coarse it does meaning to learn to adjust to current diving. That being said, the diving was quite superb. Things of curious note in Fiji.
When you get fired/leave work they post your picture in the news paper! Just imagine, you get sacked from yer job and then get the extra bonus of knowing that the whole country gets to see your picture in the news paper announcing your gonna be broke.
Bula. Cool way to say howdy in Fiji. Working on way to combine it with eh and huhhh.
Kava. Nasty drink that tastes like dirty bark juice. If you drink enough you begin to feel like your tongue is fuzzy from drinking so much bark juice. After many drinks you really wonder who came up with this tradition since you have become a feedy frenzy for the local mesquito population. After many many drinks you get tired of clapping, drinking nasty bark juice, and scratching mesquito bites to realize, your still sober...
Scuba Diving. Hell Yeah,,,, Very good...
Chocolate. Very spendy, hard to get at times.
Blowfish, cool looking fish that if it gets scared takes things wayy out of porportion by blowing it's self up with spikey needles.
Vinaka. Cool way to say thanks.
We'll that's it for now folks. More to follow later :) CHeers
