We're in the midst of a road trip to Suva, a chance to see the inland part of Fiji and the shock of a few days off the boat. Long hot showers and not having to think about refrigeration and electrical voltage makes it a real treat; a king sized bed is just icing on the cake.
We would have to conclude Fiji is a disappointment ashore. There doesn't seem to be any interest in maintaining or cleaning anything from roads to buildings. The drivers are the worst we've experienced, and here in downtown Suva we are continually reminded about security. There are strong recommendations about not walking downtown after dark, and there are elaborate security systems at the hotel. The luxury resorts and nicer homes all have fences and gates.
Our photo is a flashback to the beginning of our adventure; when we were at Isla Isabella an un-named member of the crew decided it would be fun to pick up an Iguana. As the photo shows, you have to choose your Iguana carefully; these were quite docile.
Back to Surprise on Sunday...we miss her.
