InterHash 2008/ Fiji ( part 1 - Fiji at Matava)

Starting with snowstorms in Toronto on Thursday night (March 6) and Saturday morning (March 8) and, Melanie and I snuck out Friday March 7th at lunchtime, up and across the International date line. Our 4th plane of the trip landed on the Fijian island of Kandavu, where we waited for 2 hours for a 5 minute truck ride to take us on the island's only road to the other side of the island. We waded out to a little boat and 45 minutes later, having zigzagged the coast and through the astrolabe reef we arrived at the eco-tourism resort Matava. We had 10 days and 9 nights, some as the only guests, staying in a traditional "bure" (a traditional Fijian straw hut) facing the ocean. 3 times a day the wooden drums would sound telling us that another meal was ready and we'd go stuff ourselves (in progress, updates in process)
