Bula! I have arrived safely in Fiji. It is wicked hot here (in a fabulous sunny way) with some really funny brief mist storms (we're talking 45 seconds apiece). Needless to say, I've been lazing by the pool all day. My hostel is ridiculously nice, especially for (ahem) $9.00 a night. To see pics:
I met a great girl at the airport, Sandra, and she is not only in my same room at the hostel but she's also going on the same island hopping tour with me tomorrow. So great. She's from Germany and worked for Red Bull but just graduated so now she's on a 4 month travel stint.
There have been floods in the islands (it's the wet season) and I guess that some flights were even canceled here last week, but you would never know there was rain here now. Our cruise includes a stay at Beachcombers Resort and Manta Ray, a cabin on the Yasawa island chain. Fiji has 330 islands that are large enough to be habitable, but only 125 or so are inhabited. The two main islands make up >90% of the land mass of the islands, and we are currently on the largest in Nadi.
Alright, we are off to grab some mangoes and papayas from the fruit market. Will report back after the cruise. BULA!!!!!!!!!!!
