Fiji in Fotos
As you know, I was in Fiji for work, so I didn't get to have all the fun in the sun that I would want, but there were a few highlights:
I read 3.5 books. Nothing exciting, as I had to borrow from the hotel library.
Went to a private island for the day - AMAZING! (No, this is not a postcard - I actually took this photo.)
I was able to go on a really cool hike to a water fall. The hike was beautiful, but a little easy for me. Definitely better than sitting in the hotel lobby though!
A little history: Over 40% of the population of Fiji are Indians. We had a "Bollywood" party and I got to wear a Sari for the first time. Of course, I think it makes me look fat!
I had SERIOUSLY curly hair in Fiji. So frizzed out that I had to buy a headband and wear it EVERYDAY. There was no cure for the frizz - none at all!
Not sure if you remember my obsession with taking pictures of graveyards. Well, I wasn't able to get any in Fiji - although they have really cool ones. But I channeled my obsession into taking pictures of flowers. Sometimes I think I am an 80 yr old grandma stuck in a 30-something year old body. I honestly have about 100 pictures of flowers in my camera.
