BULA MOTHERF**KER (We will explain this in a minute)
Sorry we havent been on here for a while we have been to Robinson Crusoe Island for 4 nights and there was no internet acess. well just to update you on the last 5 days.
We were picked up from our hostel on tuesday with a stinking hangover (craven slept on the masage table outside our dorm all night), we went to a bar called Eds with a local fijian girl Geraldine and some other fellow travellers we had a ball, and when we got back we all went skinny dipping and got Bonnie (bar man) very drunk and he proceeded to sleep on the bar floor very funny we have a photo.
Anyways we had a coach transfer to pick up our boat which we nearly missed due to Craven and Kevin being hungover MAMA soon screamed at them and got them moving. we got a small little boat with 4 other peeps (Nige, major drinker and nut, Laura and Emma cool girls and obviously our Irish Lucky Charm Kev)
We arrived at the island around one o clock just in time for lunch and a fire show, we decided to upgrade when we got there to BURU instead of the dorm, it was well worthit. We checked out the island which was and the surroundings and it was actually like being shipwrecked we had bucket showers which is a bucket hanging on a rope with a tap on the bottom of it, nice cold showers, i didnt brush my hair once. After lunch we went snorkelling out on the reefs which was beautiful however didnt see that many fish as water was a bit murky. Wen we got back we met this Fijian worker called LEX (he is awsome and looks like Ronaldinio, we miss him now) we had a crab race which was funny and also went on a turtle watching trip, which turned out to be one massive joke, basically there was a huge turtle shell on the beach and it looked like it was breathing Lex got everyone to get really close to it ready and waiting with there cameras suddenly the shell lifted up and one of the guys jumped out of a hole underneath it shouting BULA, it was funny some people ran away. we then had a CAVA ceromony which is a welcoming in fiji culture, (Cava is a root of a sort of pepper plant mixed with water, if you drink lots of it your whole body apparently goes numb, everyone in Fiji drinks tunz of it) we had enough to make our tung and mouth tingle, it tasted and looked like muddy water. This ceromony was held by a guy called Tooks who sed he was the islands pimp his website is www.rockmehardfijitime.com this was a joke, his laugh was hilarious. we then chilled with some beers and watched the sunset next to the bonfire. all power on the island goes out at twelve so you have lanterns to get you around.
The next few day we done snorkelling, fishing, kayaking, lots of drinking and partying in the bulls*** nightclub (named by Tooks). Snorkelling got alot better as the sea got clearer and we seen lots of fish especially Nemos. on the first morning we all kayaked around the island which took about 1 hour we seen sea snakes, which scared the crap out of me. that day we also did some fishing with Lex we caught small and one large fish, whilst we we scalping and gutting the fish Nig built our fire to cook it on. we made our own coconut milk form the coconuts on the tree and it tasted the gorgous, we ate the fish off leaves. in the evening there was a night fire show which was amazing. Lex dressed Dan and Kev up in Fijian dress with tattoos (not real). We all welcomed other people arriving to the island to watch the show with a song, it was so cool. after this we all played some games, run around a stick ten times then run back to the start 4 on a team. some of the stacks were hilarious, our team won and we got three beers only because Dan dived on the player on the other team. haha. By the way the weather has been really hot and we have been bit loads by the mozzys used all my spray already. Next day we done preety much the same dan had a starfish fight while snorkelling weird i know, and he also seen a real sea cucumber. Some of the Fijian guys (workers, firedancers, basically everything) we met inlcuded Steve the loud one, Ricardo dan taught him some rude english phrases, Lex as you know he was gorgous and he designed Dan a tattoo, Israel the guitar man, Tooks the crazy BULA MOTHAf***ER. That day everyone made a playlist off Dans eyepod for the evening party, which was a damn good nightx even all the workers got smashed. we will update more soon, internet gets expencivex love you allx
