Visiting Sam Naidu's farm
Today we spend the day at Sam Naidu's farm in the Werribee area. Sam came over to Australia from Fiji many years ago from Nadi. We made a lovo today and drank kava to celebrate the first day of the New Year 2013.. Wendy took a photo of his goats and his vegetable growing and me pretending to drive a tractor! It was a lovely day to catch up on stories as Fiji people always have connections..
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.
