This morning we enjoy breakfast in bed. The chef has prepared spicy roti (Indian flat bread) breakfast wraps filled with egg, potato, spring onion and chilies.
After breakfast Moto took us out in a bamboo raft called a bilibili. We stopped by two excellent snorkeling spots where we saw blue starfish, giant clams and corals with blue, purple, pink, orange, yellow and white polyps. Moto and I take turns rowing and singing. He is a fun tour guide!
In the afternoon we visit the Nasinu district school. Like the other schools we have visited, the students and teachers are very enthusiastic.
We meet a thirteen year old boy named Joe Newton who has produced an amazing drawing demonstrating an understanding of perspective, vanishing points and general geometry that is far beyond his years. I’m going to talk to some people in Suva to see if its possible to get him special schooling.

Next its on to Nasinu village where we are greeted with British style tea and cakes followed by a kava ceremony. We meet several family members of the Lomalagi staff. It's a wonderful experience.
Back at Lomalagi, Wais shows us how to make traditional "men’s baskets." At this point we have spent a fair amount of time learning everything from basket making to Fijian from Wais. He is one of our favorite people in Fiji.
The sunset is especially beautiful, even by Fijian standards.
