      If you are ever in Scotland we would be more than willing to be your guides. The Fijian food, drink and Kava ceremony The food in Fiji is amazing, and being an islands nation, there are many fantastic fish dishes. This helps explain the first peacemaking effort by any king during the civil war that broke out after the assassination of Tuku'aho, the 14th Tu'i Kanokupolu. One of these was Moala, the wife of Tubou, a truly sincere and good woman. Contact Bula! The majority of the population engages in some form of subsistence production of food, with approximately half producing almost all of their basic food needs through farming, sea harvesting, and animal husbandry.

      This must-see attraction is the largest Hindu temple in the Southern Hemisphere and is composed of three sections dedicated to the deities Murugan, Ganesh, Meenakshi, and Shiva respectively. The first thing you will notice as you enter the church is the lack of pews — instead, congregants sit or kneel on woven grass mats in the Fijian tradition. One of the highlights of the tour was no doubt the visit of a rural school and participating in a traditional ceremony at a village, drinking the kava. The latter was supported by some signatures, including seven of the nine elected, "People's Representatives".

      God bless you and your families, and God willing we will meet again. If you have a limited amount of time in Fiji then we recommend a bus pass inclusive of accommodation, which is for a set amount of time but still allows you to experience all the amazing spots the country has to offer. A typical day aboard the comfortable schooner will include embarkation around am. After Ma'afu's death in Fiji, his young son Siale'ataongo returned to Tonga.
