Me in Fjiji - and other links
I lived in Fiji for
twelve years,
travelling the
many islands and
meeting ordinary
Fijian families.

 I took these
photos in the old
days of black and
white
 Cargo for outlying islands usually included some goats
and chickens. I would often sleep on deck (bottom left).

 There were grounded and abandoned vessels like the one
below - me standing on deck and wishing it was mine.

This is Rabuka's own story as
told to an old friend of mine Stan
Ritova. Pre-independence he
was known as Stan Whippy and
my sons were good friends at
school with his sons.
REFERENCE BOOKS ON FIJI THAT I LIKE

An excellent book is Peter France's 'The Charter Of
The Land'.

An old standard is 'Under The Ivi Tree".

And a good history is the Fiji Times' 'A History Of
Fiji" by Kim Gravelle.
