Bula! (hello, how are you? and much more). Our time in Fiji has ended. Vinaka (thank you) to everyone who made this trip wonderful. We have had a great time and met some wonderful people.
Now to learn some fun facts. The jungle myna is very common in Fiji. We saw them a lot at the resort. A very useful tree of Fiji is the coconut tree. Another fact is that Fiji time is very slow. If someone is late, they just say “Fiji Time.” Fiji is in the Standard Time Zone (19 hours ahead of California). When you travel here you cross the international date line, so we are one day ahead. The climate is very tropical and humid. Did you know that two Fijian dollars equals one American dollar? Use the information in this post to answer the quiz questions at the bottom of the page. Well, now we are on the next leg of our journey. Fiji was very relaxing and fun. We all had a wonderful time. I hope we can go there again someday. Quiz questions: 1. If I bought a souvenir for 34 Fijian dollars, how much would that be in American dollars? 2. If it was 2:00pm on a Wednesday in Fiji, what time and day would it be in California? 3. What symbol is on Fiji’s flag that is also on England’s flag? Special treat from around the world to my classmates who answer these questions correctly! Bula! Bula! And Vinake, Fiji! Next stop is New Zealand, starting in Auckland.
Keep calm and travel around the world
