Day 12 (July 15th) was a wild ride. We woke up for a delicious breakfast, bright and early. Class started at 9am; it was a productive work period until noon.
Lunch was, of course, on Fiji time, but the beautiful chicken was worth the wait. From there, it was on to Colo-i-Suva Forest Reserve.
We began a short hike along one of the park’s many paths. The walk was one of amazement as the tree canopy created a magical tunnel around our snake-like line of EduTravellers. Shortly we reached a watering hole…with a rope swing.
Naturally, each member of the group did a couple of sweet, yet perfectly safe, jumps into the water. During our adventure at Colo-i-Suva, we saw many North American Mahogany trees.
It was easy to note the adaptations the species had made in their new environment. As I write this, we are headed to a relaxing dinner at the hotel and a work period to follow. A perfect end to a perfect day.
