Mali Islanders ready for tribewanted, says Peceli
I received a phone call this morning from Peceli in Labasa. He spent the weekend with the Mali Island people and he said they are prepared for the tribewanted visitors on September 1st and the building of the first large bure. Fijian people are very hospitable and the Mali Island people are responding positively to the Vorovoro Island project. Let's hope that all goes well with the important first steps in building low technology infrastructure to suit twenty or more visitors. The plan to co-operate by working together - islanders and visitors - is the way to go.
The pic is of two Mali girls (taken some time ago) washing dishes at Nukutatava which is 20 minutes by outboard to Vorovoro Island. You can see Mali Island in the background.
