The third day of our round trip started with a short tour of the capital of Suva. Afterwards we drove to a part of Fiji where there's almost no tourism and visited a village to experience the real Fiji. We had to put on sarongs, were greeted with a flower necklace and then took a part in a traditional welcoming ceremony - with more kava. This was all held in the Fijian language and we had a translator, I honestly felt a bit weird through all of this. But afterwards it got less strange because people did speak English and showed us how you can cook things in a piece of bamboo and we then had really great food that the women of the village had prepared for us... eating with our bare hands, oh my
The next stop was at the school where the kids put on quite a show of traditional singing and dancing for us. They were so enthusiastic and really enjoyed performing, just great! And they all wanted to be in our pictures - so cute!
Afterwards we did a little tour down the river on a bamboo float which was fun too and finally, once we dried off and changed back into our respectable clothes, we had a goodbye ceremony and were off again to our next hotel.
I am not really a fan of this human spectacle kind of thing, but everyone was so nice, the kids simply adorable so that I had a great time after all.
