Fijian BBQ

Posted by admin On July - 9 - 2006

Slept only about four hours because somebody was snorring in the dorm. Sunday morning I watched the worldcup game Germany against Portugal about the third place. Met Scott (Scottland) and some others watching the game. Germany played well and won. At least the third at the worldcup. Well done. In Fiji you cant expect anything on sunday. Nothing goes – its Fiji time. So we hang out at the pool and I met Matt, Nathan, Simon, Jenny, Zoe, Emma, Daniel, Lindsey, Foxy and Megan… I had a chat with them and they asked if I wanna join them at there trip to Nananu-I-Ra. Its a quit unknown but very beautiful island. I really liked the idea but normally had other plans for Fiji. I wanted to see the ‘Blue Lagoon’ and do the shark feeding in Pacific Harbour. And first of all I wanted to learn diving, doing the Open-Water-Course. After phoning at Nananu-I-Ra we find out that everything there is much nicer and cheaper. So I changed my plans and decided to go with the others the next day. Later on I went to the beach for collecting shells and met again Bins who invites me spontaniously to an authentic fijian BBQ. Before I asked them If they can prepare me a coconut because never had fresh coconut juice. The coconut was delicious and I learned that there are three types of coconuts. Some are for juice (yellow), others for eating or cooking (brown, green). Also I tried sugar cain – very sweet. The BBQ was with original fijian potatos. That are roots which the fijian peel and cook. They taste after potato but are more dry.

Preparing the coconut…

Thats Fiji potatoes…
