Whilst staying in Fiji we met a few Americans who recommended this place as a stop on our USA tour. Sadly as we were racing to New York to meet up with Elly and Hayley we were only able to spend a day and a half in the town. We weren't able to see the beaches or the plantations as they were too far out. After a nap and our staple bagel breakfast we went for a walk. It was a really pretty small town with gorgeous buildings which was a nice change from the large urban cities we'd been in. We wandered through the streets popping in and out of shops. There was a market selling mainly tourist products but there were some very nice jewelry stalls. After walking along the river front and watching children cool off in a public water fountain we grabbed some lunch. Pizza was the dish of the day and the slices we ordered turned out to be HUGE! Yum yum yum yum!
Apart from bars and restaurants, there wasn't much open at night so we chilled in the hostel. We were told there was a supermarket nearby which was so exciting!!! It meant we could cook ourselves a cheap, healthy and tasty meal! Hostels in America are, nine times out of ten, badly situated. They're out of town and near few amenities which became really frustrating. Additionally, many American hostels didn't have kitchens so we were forced to eat out three times a day - effecting both our budgets and our waistlines!
