Waterfull hike and Fiji tourOctober 25, 2016 in Fiji
Cruise day 17 in Fiji
Colo-I-Suva Forest Park provided us with a nice 1.2mile hike alongside a beautiful river stream and plenty of small waterfalls.
Next was a visit to a traditional local village where I was privileged to be our tour chief, this meant I got the first taste the cava they prepared during the traditional cava ceremony. This is their custom to do when ever they welcome dignitaries to Fiji 🇫🇯.
Cava is made from some pepper plant root powder mixed with water. To be honest it taste like a muddy water, not really what I will be ordering at the bar tonight. 😜
They also entertained us with some Fijian fire dancing and food prepared in what they call an earth oven. The food was actually very good and tasteful, not bland like some other local dishes we we have had in places like Cuba and Mexico.
Again everyone is so interested to know if I play rugby and the minute I say yes they want to take photos with me. They really love the game!
