After an early start for snorkelling and diving off the boat, I bought mum and natalie a present off 'Lai', a 12 year old fijian girl and her little 8 year old sister! It wasn't long before we were all playing netball on the beach and she would fit right into iceni as our best WA! I went through the games on my iPhone and we played tetris and mouthed and crosses!
I then had a tea party with herbal pancake thingies with a lady who apparently was suppose to give us lots of gossip from the village however luckily, it wasn't the English version of 'who's sleeping with who'! It was more about her family and their education! There is a small paradise island, about the size of a large garden which gets hired out for honeymoons or anyone who is wealthy enough to afford it and all the money goes to the primary school fund!
As I was walking back to my dorm, Lai tapped me in the shoulder and gave me a gift of 3 bookmarks which i will treasure and then asked for my address so that she could write to me! Wow, talk about culture, I havnt had a penpal since primary school!
I spent the evening playing old classics with Josh, the American dive instructor from Memphis who couldn't believe I also knew who Kenny Rodgers was!
Somehow we have an extra bed in our dorm tonight and as usual, everyone else was fast asleep by about 10 and I had to sneak in with my trusty iPhone torch when out of the blue came a 'twit woo' whistle, extremely random and I'm thinking it must be the new Germans who have just moved in as the quiet Japanese guy who sits in bed all day with his iPod and the policeman from bath aren't really suspects!
