Have just returned from my village, Dravuni, the northern most inhabited island in the Kadavu group of the Fiji Islands.

The family house is called Natavasara, where my father was born and raised. 

Now my cousin Vuate and his partner Ili live at Natavasara, having moved there from Suva in 1997 after the death of our Tutu Maciu.

New years eve was spent at church…

Hanging out playing vidividi, rami, and massaging sore muscles…

Cooking and eating…

And walking up to the highest point on Dravuni to watch the sun set on 2006…
