Bula! from Fiji

We are on our way home tonight and Fiji has been incredible! We went scuba diving two different days and saw lots of sharks and a sea snake and incredible soft coral and fish. Lots of nemos (clown fish). Four of us went sea kayaking and our kayak got water logged out at sea. It was an adventure. We were trying to swim it back in and drag the kayaks but we were going about 10 meters an hour and someone on shore spotted us and sent out the boat! Stupid tourists!
We saw some Fijian dancers last night who were really good and there was some great firedancing as well.
Yesterday we went up to a real fijian village in the rainforests - just six of us. Not touristy. But the chief met with us and his son showed us around there land. We hiked up to a cave and some incredible waterfalls that we swam in. And they cooked us a traditional lunch - taro leaves with coconut milk, fried eggplant, fish, sausage, boiled tapioca and lemon juice. It was pretty good.
I don't have any pictures to post because i lost my camera in Sydney. Not sure where...I'm trying not to think about it. :) But everyone else has taken tons so i'll have lots to show!
Hope to talk to everyone very soon!
