Cameron Buckner's Fijian Travelogue in Vanua Levu

I've been reading parts of a very long narrative by Cameron Bucknell who was in Savusavu in a Rotary/Red Cross project concerning computers. His style is observant, funny, sympathetic, sometimes mistaken or judgmental. It's really the adventures of a vavalagi in Vanua Levu. He has some good photos. The story I first read - which comes near the end, was about a long hike in Natewa Bay area. Of course it was inevitable that someone would ask him 'You walked! Hey, why didn't you just catch a bus?'

Cameron Buckner’s Fijian Travelogue – in Vanua Levu - home page says:
'Ni sa bula!
Welcome to the web site of Cameron Buckner, a philosophy graduate student at Indiana University and incorrigible nomad. Herein lies a travelogue compiled over two summers spent in Savusavu, a lazy little town on the Fijian island of Vanua Levu. Also included for your browsing pleasure are several collections of photographs, writings, and my professional philosophy web site.'

Yes, the pics are good and some of the stories and commentary demand a re-read. I haven't read even a quarter of it yet. Some nice asides whem meeting people - and one is a politician these days!
