Bula back home!
Im sitting here in a tent next to the first aid kit I’ve so often had to use and overlooking the south pacific writing my first ever blog. I suppose i’m going to put this down to ‘fiji time’, you literally have no concept of time and everything is so chilled out; a big contrast to life back home.
My first few days in the village were the hardest, the culture shock, village life and getting back to basics are the initial things that I needed to overcome. The people on the other hand are so welcoming, ever eager to please and ensure we are made at home. I can honestly say that the past few weeks have flown by and thinking now we have only just over a week left in the village when you’ve just started to settle in and get to know not only the group I’ve come out with but the locals too.
Today we had TP Olympics, consisting of volleyball, football and rounders. I was put in Oli’s team and for those of you who know Oli and how competitive he is, the name of the game was to win basically! The games are to be continued..
The past few weeks have been full of memories and its o hard to pinpoint all of them. What i can say is that this trip has exceeded my expectations and it literally is an experience of a life time. The people are great, the cakes are amazing here, the projects are all going to plan , the only thing I’m missing is a Nandos!
