Where on Earth are Caro and Fer? travel blog


FER:

Hello everyone =) So we've been in Fiji now for a week and at first a bit dissapointed at the way things work here. Let me explain. While in Thailand we went from island to island with no problem, at our own pace, any time we wanted. We figured that would be the same here, and we'd spend the 5 weeks traveling from island to island, beach to beach etc. Well that's not possible here. Ill explain the details at home as they're a little confussing, but basically there's a monopoly and if you want to take a boat anywhere there's only ONE company and the price is ridiculous. With the help of some local friends what we've decided to do instead is head to the Island of MANA. We hear it's really nice, we'll see. Also rather than many islands we're gonna stick to that one for a couple weeks and insted of sitting on our butts the entire time taking in the sun =) we're going to volunteer at the local school. Maybe i'll get to serve the lunch wearing an apron and hair net as I start a food fight. I better find out how to say "Coconut-INCOMINGGGGG" in Fijian =)

Here in Nadi we've been staying with Paul and Diane's family couch surfing =) SUPER COOL PEOPLE. There are other couchsurfers here and evey night its someone elses turn to make dinner. Last night it was ours and since it was Sunday we bought chicken and had a bar-b-q. We showed them how to play rummy (card game) and now they're hooked. Every night we have a game and it gets very competitive, especially CARO. She cheats and whines the most. Yesterday we went to a beach about an hour fom here, we were told it's nice but not as nice as the ones in MANA. We've been to a lot of beaches in a lot of countries while on this trip and yesterdays was one of the top three we've been to. MANA here we come =) Oh yeah, it's extremely RARE for a person to have internet at their home here in FIJI but we're lucky that Paul and Diane have it (im using it now=) but remember when the internet first started, how SLOW IT WAS. That's how it is here, what i'm trying to say is that uploading pics is gonna be a challenge. I'll give it a shot when we get back from Mana and show you =)

(I agree I am very competitive at playing cards but the whining that is a complete lie bec. both times that we've played a tournament I have come out whipping everyones BUTT especially FER'S)

HOLA =) Bueno pues llevamos ya una semana aqui en FIJI y un poco desepcionados en como se hacen aqui las cosas. Cuando andavamos en Tailandia ivamos de isla a isla sin problema, a la hora que queriamos, CUANDO queriamos. Pensamos que seria lo mismo aqui y pasariamos las 5 semanas de isla en isla, playa a playa etc. Pues eso no es possible aqui. Basicamente hay una sola compania que arregla viajes entre las islas y se pasan con los precios. Si uno viene por una semana pues talves, pero nosotros que llevamos un buen viajando, el cochinito ya esta BIEN FLACO. PERO =) con la ayuda de unos amigos aqui locales lo que emos decidido hacer es escoger la isla de MANA y pasarla aya. Nos dicen que es muy bonita, ya veremos. Y como vamos a pasar unas semanas en la misma, emos decidido ayudar en la escula de voluntarios. Aqui en Fiji nos emos estado quedando con Paul y Diane como Couchsurfers SON A TODO DAR =) Como hay otros couchfurfers cada noche le toca o otro la cena. Anoche nos toco a nosotro y como era Domingo pues compramos pollo y lo echamos en la parilla. Luego tambien les ensenamos el juego de RUMY con cartas y cada noche nos ponemos POR HORAS a jugar. La cosa se pone bien intensa con lo competitivos que somos, sobre todo CARO. Es bien chillona y hace trampa. Ayer fuimos a una playa que esta como a una hora de aqui y nos dicen que no es tan bonita como las de Mana. Hemos visto muchas playas en varios paises durante este viaje y la de ayer es facil una de las tres mejores, asi que parece vamos a cerrar el viaje con broche de oro =) Por cierto, es super raro que alguien tenga internet en su casa aqui en Fiji pero por suerte Paul y Diane aqui lo tienen. La cosa es que es SUPERRRRRRR LENTAAAAAAAA, asi que poner fotso va a estar en chino. Le intentare ahora que regresemos de Mana para que vean =)

CARO (HAgo la aclaracion que en el juego de cartas si me pongo un poco o bastante competitiva pero los dos torneos que hemos jugado yo eh sido la CAMPEONA!!!! Haci que el que se aguita pierde FER!!!
