We spent 10 days on the fijian islands and went to 3 different resosrts. In the first resort we went snorkeling with sharks and got to touch them, crazy!We also so a million multi coloured fish.very pretty. Then we were treated to a fiji night were the islanders danced and we all drank kava - this is their version of an alcoholic drink. It is distgusting and tastes of soil and feet and leaves your mouth totally numb. The next few days we spent playing in the water,lying on hammocks and frying in the sun with our pale irish skin. We met some really lovely people and on christmas day had a sports day and played volley ball with the locals. not your average christmas! fiji is exactly what you would imagine paradise to look like. everyone should go there.
The kava ceremonyThis is taken very seriuosly. They make the yuk soil drink in the big pot. The island cheif takes the first drink while everyone sits in total silence.then you have to clap three times before you drink it.fun stuff!
fiji nightthe island males dressed in lovely skirts and danced for us. halarious!
