To Fiji and Back Again in 6 Eventful Days

Well, home again we are. Fiji was just amazing. I would go back there in a heartbeat. That place is so beautiful and so rich in culture, and the people are the nicest, friendliest people you could ever hope to meet. The wedding was unforgettable, and by far the best one I have ever been to. I'm developing my Diana photos this afternoon, although not without a huge number of hot, remorseful tears - I accidently opened the back of my camera before checking that it was properly rewound. I completely ruined a whole 24 exposure film of Fiji and wedding pictures in one tiny, unfortunate peek. Needless to say, I am utterly devastated, but the only thing to do is to try not and think about those beautiful pictures anymore... it just can't be helped.

So here are my digital creations, of which I'm not particuarly proud. Most were taken with a salty, dirty lense on an exciting safari river adventure, or from a moving omnibus or dusty lorry. But they will hopefully give you a small insight into the lives of the Fijians, and an idea of the fun and adventure that we had exploring the country.
