from the fresh orchids in the airport restroom, to the "lovely ladies" waiting to help us find what we needed upon arrival, to the eager taximen, and the refreshing breeze and beautiful foliage of this tropical island, we are ready to be "Fiji-ed"!
We rented a car, grabbed a coffee, put our extra luggage that wouldn't fit in the car (and we thought we wouldn't need) in the storage room at the airport, loaded up the car and set off to the other side of the island to our family in Suva. We did make a stop for diaper change and ice cream (not realizing that it was only 9 in the morning, but it's a milk product, right?) and we made it to Suva around lunchtime. We're staying with Conn's older sister, Danietta and her family. The kids are loving spending time with their cousins and were bored stiff while the others were at school this morning. Now Conn, James and Tanielu have gone with Conn's brother-in-law, Katirite and the 3 boys of this family to the park to play for a while and run out their boredom. I get time on the internet after the power has been off all day, and Parker is playing with his auntie.
