Flag of Fiji  ,
Saturday, October 30, 2004

We arrived safetly to Nadi Airport last night around 3:15 am after a very long 11 hour flight from LA. There to greet us was a 5 piece traditional band clad in skirts and flowered shirts. Mind you, this was at 4am.

Our hostel is fine, although any bed would have suited us well this morning. We met one of our roommates, Fara, and after a breakfast with Australian Dan we have spent the day tour the "city." Although we haven't seen the beaches yet, I think it's safe to say that Fiji is known for the beaches and not the bustling commerce.

Our Economic Diet (look for it at bookstores in Aug. 2005) is being fueled by peanut butter and jelly during this leg of the trip. And yes, the Econ Diet is exactly what it sounds like: a diet based on money and not on food.

Off to find a bus and head to the pool. Tomorrow it's a day trip to an island for some tourist/native fun.
