To begin the day, we went up to the classroom and started a new unit in biology. We had a nice view while we were working, since the classroom is on top of a hill overlooking the ocean. Today we learned about parts of the digestive system and chronic diseases such as diabetes and cancers.
At 12:00, we got on the bus and headed into town where we ate a delicious lunch at “Grace Roads Kitchen.” The food was all organic, grown sustainably in Fiji, and tasted great.
Next, we had free time to explore the market in town. We wore traditional sulus so we could get used to wearing them in the villages.
Everyone looked great in them! In town, there was a big mall and many little stores along the street. We had free time to go and buy whatever we wanted to – some people purchased things such as ukeleles, sulus, and volleyballs to play with back at the resort.
Overall, it was a great day today. We learned a lot of new things and also got an opportunity to experience Fijian culture.
