    Kava Shops and Bollywood Video Libraries

    This is a street scene in a tiny town between Sigatoka and Suva.

    On the left is a `Grog Shop` selling kava. Alcoholic and narcotic beverages are known as `grog` in Fiji. On the right is a video shop which was a veritable Bollywood bonanza!

    Large numbers of people in Fiji trace their roots to India. In rural areas, the split is about 50-50 between those of native origin and those of Indian descent. An Indian gentleman is entering the grog shop, and moments before I took the picture, a Fijian family exited the video library...

    Visit a village!

    One of the best experiences you can have is to visit a local village. I stayed at the Tambua Sands Resort on the Coral Coast. It's smaller than some of the big resorts nearby and there are more opportunities to meet the locals. After a few days we were invited to the home of one of the hotel staff.

    A big meal and a little too much kava afterwards! The 10 minute walk back to the hotel was very slow.....
