I don't have much time to write, so I'll show pictures instead (with maybe a few comments...)
I'll write more later. By the way --- why didn't anybody tell me toddlers and 9.5 hour flights don't mix!?
This is a REAL Fijian Village (with a REAL chief...who we met and presented a gift to allow us to visit - more on that later)
Our "bure" (or fancy little hut that looked like it was decorated by Fiji Pottery Barn...)
Our helicopter to/from the island. Only 10 minutes from Nadi. Or you can take a boat which takes about 1 hour and 45 minutes.
There was this "rock" next to our island. Every night bats would fly over from it to suck blood from young women. Well, not really. But that would have been pretty cool if they did.
One of 500 pictures I took from the helicopter. can you believe my daughter fell asleep? She's awake for the plane ride, but fell asleep on a 10 minute helicopter ride?! (sheez!)
