Visitors from Papua New Guinea
This morning it was minus 1 degree at 8 a.m. after a very cold night, but we had a good party last night when Ben's family visited us and stayed overnight. Ben works in Port Morseby but the family are from Fiji. We had a good time with the delightful children. Kava flowing and sociable though sometimes kids do love their computer screens.
Introducing Peceli and Wendy. Babasiga (pronounced bambasinga) is the dry land of Macuata in northern Fiji - our place in the sun in Fiji. The town is Labasa and our village is Vatuadova and the beach is Nukutatava. We are part of Wailevu Fijian tribe with relatives in Mali Island and Naseakula village. Peceli was born in Labasa and Wendy is an Australian and today live in Geelong, Australia.
