Waiting for the Air Pacific plane
Last night I noticed that people waiting at Tullamarine,(Melbourne) for the Air Pacific plane from Fiji seemed to be quiet, isolated, not talking to strangers, just standing there at the barrier waiting an hour as their relative/friend went through customs etc. At least the planes seem to be full and tourists are still going to Fiji.
I think at Nadi airport it may be different. People talk to one another whether family, friends, or strangers. Or has Fiji changed and people no longer smile and say hi with small talk?
And some people in Fiji just wait in their homes hoping their kin with one day return from working in security in places like Iraq.
