Flag of Fiji  ,
Thursday, January 12, 2006

Bula! Fiji was amazing! For all of you who love long walks on the beach, this is the place to be. After 22 hours of grueling travel it was nice to relax on the beach and adjust to the huge time change-17 hours ahead of EST (we think). We stayed in a little bungalow complete with an ornate outdoor shower off of our bathroom. The highlight of our trip was when we went scuba diving. We swam through a school of barracuda, held a sea cucumber, and saw an 8 foot nurse shark sleeping in a cave only five feet away! We saw a traditional Fijian fire walking ceremony and drank Kava, a tongue-numbing concoction made of four year old, dried root mixed with water that tasted like dirt, and essentially was. We participated in a game of pool basketball which involved a lot of groping, attacking, and general mayhem. Needless to say Sara now bears a scar on her ribcage! Our days consisted of laying on the beach, reading, and sleeping on the beach. This was so exhausting that we were forced to go to bed at 7pm every night. Despite the fact that we were nearly attacked by a colony of angry, claw-bearing crabs while climbing in the rocks on the beach, the hotel guests all thought we were a lesbian couple, and the wait staff thought we were cheap (which was true), it was a great start to our trip!
